Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Program Director Welcome

Se Won Lee, MD

Thank you for your interest in our Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education (GME) Consortium Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency program. We are an ACGME accredited three-year program; part of HCA Healthcare’s GME; located in the city of Las Vegas.

I am excited to bring you the first Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) training program in the state of Nevada. Followings are strengths of our program.

The combination of two high-volume HCA acute care hospitals (MountainView and Sunrise Medical Center with more than 1000 inpatient beds and 78 acute inpatient rehabilitation beds) and comprehensive outpatient PM&R department at Veteran Affairs Southern Nevada Healthcare system provide a wide variety of PM&R cases essential for a well-rounded clinical experience.

The program provides unique learning opportunities involving hands-on learning experience at state of the art Simulation Center for physiatric skill development and comprehensive neuro-musculoskeletal medicine review based on the manual published by the program director.

HCA GME, through its national scale, offers rich opportunities for clinical research including access to online knowledge resources, nationwide clinical databases, and a group of expert researchers. Locally, the clinical research department at Sunrise GME consortium provides easily accessible expertise in clinical research with hands-on assistance in various aspect of clinical research implementation.

Most importantly, our program has dedicated and experienced faculty with diverse practice backgrounds providing the best practice-based learning environment.

We received accreditation for 15 advanced (three-year) Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency positions in January of 2019.

Our current class of 5 PGY-2 residents that started in July 2019, will be joined by the upcoming PGY-2 class of 5 residents in July 2020. We are looking forward to recruiting for the July 2021 PGY-2 class.

As a program director, I bring more than 10 years of clinical, educational and administrative experience. I’m a graduate of the Catholic University of Korea, College of Medicine, and completed Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine. In 2007, I stayed as a faculty of Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, became Director of Electrodiagnostic Laboratory and helped begin the ACGME accredited Sports Medicine Fellowship program in 2014. I strive to be a dedicated teacher. I received the “Teacher of the Year” award by PM&R residents three times during my stay at Montefiore Medical Center.

I look forward to meeting you. Best wishes on a career in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
