Welcome from the Program Director – Nikola Dragojlovic, DO

Thank you for your interest in the McGovern Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Residency Program. We are an ACGME-accredited, categorical (4 year) program based in the Texas Medical Center. The Texas Medical Center is home to some of the preeminent hospitals in the United States. Our department has a rich history of affiliation with institutions like TIRR Memorial Herman, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Harris Health, and Memorial Hermann, home to the country’s busiest Level I trauma center.

We are committed to offering a broad and comprehensive education in physiatry, in an environment that values collegiality and patient-centered care. Our residents are bright, hard-working, and help lead our department’s mission to provide high-quality physiatric care to all. As program director, I value the input and contributions of our residents and strive to ensure our curriculum grows with them. They reflect the diversity of our home, too. Houston is a fast-growing, urban city with Texas charm and an easy-to-enjoy lifestyle.

The PM&R faculty at McGovern are accomplished educators and clinicians. Our program provides ample opportunities for research, including a faculty-led Quality Improvement curriculum. Our didactics drawn upon the talent of rehabilitation physicians and other clinicians across the Texas Medical Center.

We have one common goal: to train the next generation of leaders in Physiatry.
