Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship
The Wright State University Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship is a one-year American College of Graduate Medical Examination (ACGME) accredited fellowship which currently accepts two fellows per year. It is sponsored by the Wright State University Emergency Medicine Residency Program and is designed for graduates of Emergency Medicine, Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, or Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residencies. After successful completion of the fellowship, the graduate will be able to sit for the Certificate of Added Qualification exam in Primary Care Sports Medicine.
The sports medicine team provides care for patients of all ages from early childhood to the elderly. The fellowship provides an opportunity to care for middle school, high school, undergraduate, and professional athletes. Event coverage includes football, soccer, track, baseball, basketball, and wrestling. Our fellowship prides itself on allowing the fellow to pursue personal interests. While preparing for the Primary Care Sports Medicine Certificate of Added Qualification Exam and meeting the basic requirements of Primary Care Sports Medicine practice, we encourage and assist our fellows to take advantage of many of the optional educational opportunities that the fellowship offers. Previous fellows have used elective time and additional rotations to improve on skills they feel are important for their personal interests and practice.
Our facility uniquely houses physical therapy, an exercise physiology lab, and a sports performance enhancement program which many fellows use to expand on their knowledge of rehabilitation protocols and implementation of exercise stress testing. Fellows are encouraged to observe the physical therapy protocols as they are implemented in order to be well acquainted with the home exercise and physical therapy modalities they will be prescribing in their own practices.
