Fellows will have the opportunity to work closely with and learn from other health care professionals, including athletic trainers, doctors of pharmacy, exercise physiologists, nutritionists, physical therapists, coaches and behavioral scientists.

Fellows will have access to sporting events, team sports and mass participation events.
