Current Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine Fellows

Christina Kokorelis, M.D.

 

Dr. Kokorelis began her fellowship in 2017 after completing her residency training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.

"I chose the fellowship program at Kennedy Krieger because, while a resident at Johns Hopkins, I rotated at KKI and quickly learned that the resources, faculty, and the ample amount of time devoted to each patient is truly unparalleled.  I was immediately impressed with the faculty, their knowledge, commitment to research, and their love of teaching. At the same time, KKI and their providers really value the patient (especially the complex one!), and have a myriad of resources and a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer. I knew it would be a privilege to work here!"

Amanda Morrow, M.D.

 

Dr. Morrow began her fellowship in 2017 after completing her residency training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore.

“I chose the fellowship program at Kennedy Krieger due to the extensive clinical exposure to multiple interesting patient diagnoses, research and educational opportunities. The collaboration among pediatric rehabilitation medicine, neurodevelopmental medicine, orthopedics, neurosurgery, as well as the therapists provides many learning opportunities across multiple disciplines. In addition, the PRM faculty and other staff members at Kennedy Krieger are very supportive of the fellows in helping to shape their future careers.”
