The overall educational goals of the Sports Medicine fellowships encompass four, equally important areas: General Knowledge, Exercise, Sports Injuries and Team Physician experience.
The longitudinal curriculum is designed to provide knowledge to evaluate and treat sports medicine related injuries while becoming an active professional in the field of Sports Medicine. Fellows will work one-on-one with faculty in the following locations over the training year.
The four tracks share curricular similarities, but, they also have separate and distinct components that make each unique.
All four tracks will keep you busy with a full schedule of opportunities for fellows throughout the year.
Your Sports Medicine Fellowship training includes opportunities to advance your skills and knowledge in key areas of assessment and care by attendance at Orthopedic Sports Medicine didactics and Primary Care didactics.
We recognize each trainee comes from a different educational background and are goal is to customize the Primary Care didactic schedule to fit all fellows learning needs regardless of which track they may have matched into.
Feedback from a baseline survey completed upon entering the fellowship helps us create our Primary Care didactic schedule for the academic year.
Regardless of where you may fall on the survey rating scale, we want to be sure you receive the training you need to move from “very uncomfortable” to “very comfortable” or somewhere in-between.
