• Curriculum

    The sports medicine fellowship utilizes a variety of training experiences to prepare fellows for future practice in the private or academic arenas.

  • Board-certified primary care physicians and orthopaedic surgeons who focus on the care of athletic injuries provide fellows with expert guidance and supervision. Fellows also care for patients in a continuity fashion supervised by faculty of their primary specialty. This will serve to continue fostering their knowledge and skill related to their specialty. Fellows also have the opportunity to serve as team physicians for youth, high school and college athletic teams. This provides the hands-on, game-day experience needed to make the critical decisions related to an athlete’s safe return to play.

    The sports medicine fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s incorporates a longitudinal didactic program. Fellows study and discuss information from textbooks as well as the latest research related to anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and injury and treatment concerning all systems and their relationship to athletic participation. With this information, fellows leave our program better equipped to develop a comprehensive treatment regimen individualized to each patient’s needs.

    Sports medicine fellows round out their education with exposure and experience in clinical and research activities. Cincinnati Children’s Sports Medicine Biodynamics Center offers a strong research component, giving fellows the opportunity to take part in ongoing research projects or develop individual projects based on personal interests and experiences. Our goal is to have the fellow submit papers or case studies to be considered for presentation at national meetings.
