The Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship at Dell Medical School offers a longitudinal experience working with a multi-interdisciplinary group of faculty and health care providers. Rotations include primary care sports medicine, orthopedic surgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, emergency medicine, musculoskeletal radiology and cardiology.
The curriculum consists of 13 four-week blocks and will expose fellows to athletes of all ages as well as procedures performed by practicing sports medicine physicians. It is designed to allow fellows to explore how different subspecialists evaluate and treat an athletic population.
The program accepts applicants from family Medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and emergency medicine. The required continuity clinic for each specialty will take place in a suitable setting and will be supervised by a board-certified physician in the appropriate field of medicine.
The major components of didactic teaching are patient centered care, monthly journal clubs, monthly primary care sports medicine lecture series and a daily question. The fellow will also have access to Dell Med’s library (PubMed, journals, books) as well as UpToDate. Each fellow is also required to complete a research presentation.
