Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship (Florida)
The Department of Family Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville offers a 12-month accredited Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship. The Sports Medicine Fellowship involves the care of patients with sports, fitness or recreational activity-related injuries that adversely affect their ability to participate in physical activity.
The program also includes medical coverage for various athletic events and provision of sports physicals for school age and professional athletes. As a trainee in this program, you will have a continuity sports medicine clinic in which you will discuss patients with one of the faculty physicians who has a Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in Sports Medicine.
The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredits this program.
The physicians at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville developed the Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship Program in 2002 and accepted the first fellows the same year. The program has graduated one fellow each year since its existence. It is anticipated that one trainee will complete this fellowship annually.
