Education Events & Research

  • At Penn State Hershey Rehabilitation Hospital, we place great importance on the role of education in the rehabilitation process. It provides the framework for clinical excellence, the basis for patient and family understanding, and the opportunity to expand the boundaries of our field. 

    We offer a number of educational programs and community events throughout the year to meet the needs and interests of medical and rehabilitation professionals – physicians, therapists, nurses, psychologists, case managers and social workers – as well as consumers.

    In addition, members of our medical and clinical teams are available to speak at hospital, physician and community events, including, for example, athletic groups and senior organizations. To request a speaker, please let us know your needs and contact information.

    Training for Tomorrow

    Penn State Hershey Rehabilitation Hospital is proud to be the academic home of the new Penn State College of Medicine and Penn State Hershey Medical Center Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

    This program complements the hospital's commitment to providing a higher degree of excellence in medical rehabilitation. By offering the advanced education and hands-on training to new practitioners, Penn State Hershey will continue to enhance the field of medical rehabilitation.

    Students will work closely with our experienced staff to learn about clinical advances, best practices, new and emerging scientific findings and technologies, and patient-centered care.
