Cory Wernimont, MD

Clinical Assistant Professor, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Associate Residency Program Director


Hometown: Appleton, WI

Medical School: Wayne State University School of Medicine

Favorite Place in Ann Arbor: It's a three-way tie:

  1. Washtenaw Dairy
  2. The Arb in the Fall
  3. Stadium Hardware (no lie, they literally have absolutely any random thing you need, it is crazy)

Why UM? UM offers an incredibly diverse program with leaders in many of the various specialties. I have had the opportunity to interact with several of the UM Physiatrists on a professional level prior to returning to medical school, and this allowed me to see first hand the dedication, passion, and commitment to excellence that the staff at the UM possess. In particular they serve a very broad pediatric population in addition to having a robust Spinal Cord Unit, both of which will provide me with numerous learning opportunities in my particular areas of interest.
