The Sports Physical Therapy Residency Program is housed primarily within the Sports Medicine Biodynamics Center located at our Oak Campus. In 2002, the hospital recognized a need to better serve the young athletic population in the region, in addition to developing a nationally recognized research program in Sports Medicine. From this dream, the Division of Sports Medicine was born and has grown into a thriving practice of primary care sports medicine, sports physical therapy and sports medicine research. Each arm of the Division has grown and contributed to a dynamic team of physicians, physical therapists and researchers.
Full-time support staff and services are available to meet the needs of the resident and the clinical residency program faculty. The full and part-time office staff are responsible for scheduling and referral management. There are full- and part-time physical therapy rehabilitation technicians whose services are available to the resident when needed. Computerized documentation is fully supported by the information services staff.
The resident has a laptop with docking station and personal work space within the PT staff office at the Sports Medicine Biodynamics Center. The resident has full access to Cincinnati Children's Pratt Library. This includes literature search assistance and training, and unlimited access to full text articles. The resident has access to all the research facilities in the Sports Medicine Biodynamics Center including, but not limited to a fully equipped motion analysis laboratory and the Human Performance Laboratory.
Physician office observation will occur both at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in the Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Departments.
