About our Fellowship

About the Program

About the Program

The Sports Medicine Fellowship is a one year fellowship in non-operative sports medicine. The fellowship is open to board eligible/board certified graduates of accredited residency programs in Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

Fellows will receive clinical education necessary to treat a wide variety of sport- and exercise-related injuries and medical conditions.  A major strength of the program is the breadth, depth, and diversity of experiences and training for the fellow.  The fellow will gain experience in all levels of athletics from recreational to professional, as well as adaptive athletics.  The fellow will be exposed to patients of all ages through clinics at Children’s Wisconsin, Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, and the Clement J. Zablock VA Medical Center.  The fellow will also have experience seeing athletes in the training room.

The fellowship curriculum includes both formal didactics and clinical teaching. Fellows learn musculoskeletal ultrasound, with both didactics and in-office procedures. Fellows experience the full range of sports-related injuries from managing acute injuries on the sideline to treating prolonged postconcussion syndrome in our multidisciplinary concussion program. Fellows work with other orthopaedic surgery subspecialists (foot/ankle, HUE, hip, pediatrics, spine), private practice sports medicine physicians, Imaging (adult and pediatric MSK-focused radiologists), plus options for experiences with primary care, urgent/emergency care and any other medical subspecialists. Anatomy lab will be available to fellows.

The fellow will have ample opportunity for sports coverage ranging from mass events, youth athletic tournaments, high school, to college and professional athletic coverage.  Beyond caring for sports teams, the fellow will have opportunities to engage in community education and medical education.  Our faculty is very active with national organizations, which will provide the fellow with opportunities for peer-reviewed publications and presenting at regional and national meetings.

Fellows will have adequate time allowed to engage in academic activities and research, with the expectation of presenting an abstract or clinical case at a national meeting, as well as the Medical College of Wisconsin Sports Medicine Symposium.

This fellowship participates in the Primary Care Sports Medicine Match sponsored by the National Residency Match Program (NRMP).
