The University of Washington offers a one-year academic fellowship in Sports Medicine. The fellowship is accredited by the ACGME and after completion allows the graduate to sit for the Sports Medicine CAQ examination. Fellows receive an outstanding clinical experience to develop into well-rounded sports medicine and musculoskeletal physiatrists. The fellow will gain clinical experience with all aspects of sports medicine (from the pediatric athlete to the active senior and everyone in between), but also general musculoskeletal medicine, spine, musculoskeletal ultrasound, regenerative procedures, lumbar spine interventions, and EMG/NCS.
The fellow will work closely with and learn from our twelve sports, spine and musculoskeletal faculty within the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington located at three main clinical sites, including our premier Sports Medicine Center at Husky Stadium, which includes our Sports Performance Center, Running Medicine Program (rated #1 by Northwest Runner Magazine in 2015), Sports Cardiology Program, and is the hub of our MSK Regenerative Medicine offerings. Due to the breadth of our program and faculty, there is an abundance of opportunities for a devoted fellow.
Hands-on sports medicine experiences include game and side-line coverage, training room experience, the organization of and medical care in mass participation endurance events and a premier Sports Concussion Program.
The fellow will also have the opportunity to work with other renowned faculty of the University of Washington, including our sports medicine colleagues in family medicine, orthopaedics, radiology, and physical therapy, as well as rheumatology, anesthesiology/pain, and other orthopaedic surgical sub-specialists.
The fellowship experience includes regular departmental didactics as well as multi-disciplinary specialty conferences including Sports Medicine Grand Rounds, Sports Medicine Journal Club, and Spine Grand Rounds.
The fellowship experience also includes a unique year-round fellow’s continuity clinic, precepted by faculty, at the Sports Medicine Center at Husky Stadium
