Our training prepares graduates to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal and medical problems. In addition to traditional curriculum in primary care sports medicine, fellows train in diagnostic ultrasound, as well as fluoroscopic and ultrasound guided injections. Fellows work with all sports medicine CAQ certified faculty in the sports medicine clinic, and rotate with orthopedic specialists in sports medicine, hand surgery, podiatry, and shoulder, elbow and knee pathology.
Fellows also contribute to the education of the JPS Family Medicine residents and medical students by preparing and presenting lectures and providing hands-on guidance in the clinic.
The JPS Family Medicine Residency participates in a length-of-training program that allows residence interested in completing a Sports Medicine Fellowship to integrate sports medicine into their Family Medicine Residency. Residents begin their sports medicine focus in their second and third years. During their fourth year, all rotations are sports medicine focused.
