The Emory University PM&R/Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship Program is an ACGME accredited program that takes place following completion of an accredited Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation or other Primary Care Sports Medicine Residency (EM, IM, Peds, FP).

The 12 month program begins on July 1st and ends June 30th of the following year. The program will offer a broad based sports education in diagnosing and treating non-operative sports conditions, including the use of diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound as well as ultrasound guided interventions, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell injections. There will also be significant amount of experience with sideline coverage of multiple sports from high school through professional level as well as visits to the training room to treat athletes in their own environment. Fellows will attend the annual meeting for the American Medical Association for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) and the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPMR) and potentially other meetings as well. In addition, Fellows will have a ½ day per week of dedicated research time to do collaborative translational research as well as work on case presentations and other academic pursuits. We are looking to train future leaders in primary care sports medicine and we have a very experienced and dedicated faculty to assist in that mission.
