Program curriculum

A diverse curriculum

The curriculum is comprised of high-quality rotations and protected lecture time while being flexible and adapting to meet the evolving needs of the fellow and the progr­­­­­­am.

The fellowship begins with core rotations, consisting of two months of intense sports medicine clinic and a set of core lectures, followed by elective time to focus on and further develop skills in their areas of interest.

The below schedule is a representation of the remaining ten months of fellowship after completion of the initial two months of core sports medicine clinic is complete.

Electives to enhance your skills

Electives include cardiology, physical therapy, exercise science, nutrition, ortho OR time, pediatric sports medicine, upper extremity (shoulder/elbow) clinic, hand/wrist clinic, hip/knee clinic, foot/ankle clinic, radiology, pain management and regenerative medicine. If the fellow finds an elective not mentioned that they are interested in, the fellowship will incorporate that elective into the fellow’s curriculum.

The fellow must either complete a research project or a case presentation (to be submitted to the AMSSM). Additionally, the fellow must complete one quality improvement project.

By completing a diverse curriculum involving multiple specialties, the fellow will develop and master a well-rounded, multifaceted approach to the diagnosis and treatment of the sports medicine patient. Our program is heavy in diagnostic ultrasound and other procedures ranging from SI joint injections, lumbar facet injections, muscle and tendon injections, tenotomies (Tenex), fracture management, and interpretation of musculoskeletal radiology (x-rays, MRI and CT scans), to name a few. The fellow has the opportunity to become RMSK certified, Tenex certified and sports medicine board certified while in fellowship.
