Clinical training in the one-year Orthopedic Sports Medicine Fellowship includes outpatient evaluation and hospital activities. Prior to the start of the appointment, the program director and fellow will review the yearlong curriculum to maximize the educational experience of the fellow.
During the fellowship, you have the opportunity to participate in research, develop protocols, conduct studies and submit articles to peer-reviewed journals. There is one half-day each week devoted to research, and there is additional time available to work on clinical studies during faculty absences.
Clinical conferences, seminars, small discussion groups, journal clubs and one-on-one instruction are integral parts of the Orthopedic Sports Medicine Fellowship. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities:
- Sports medicine conference (fellow is responsible for organizing and presenting cases)
