Sports Medicine Fellowship

Advancing the discipline of Sports Medicine one fellow at a time.


The Sports Medicine Fellowship program is designed to train fellows in the diagnosis and management of medical injuries and illnesses related to athletes at all levels from children to adults – from weekend warriors to pro athletes. 

With two robust tracks – Primary Care Fellowship Track and Pediatric Fellowship Track– our fellowship offers consistent, quality curricular similarities along with separate and distinct components that make each track unique.

We invite you to learn more about our exciting and comprehensive fellowship program housed at the nationally renowned University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus at the foot of the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

The Sports Medicine Fellowship program will provide Colorado, the nation, and the world with leaders of excellence in:

Education - through the provision of sports medicine educational programs to medical students, allied health students, graduate students and house staff, practicing health professionals, and the public at large.

Research - through the development of new knowledge in the basic and clinical sciences, as well as in health policy and health care education.

Patient Care - through state-of-the-art clinical programs which reflect the unique educational environment of the University, as well as the needs of the patients it serves.
