Pediatric (Primary Care) Sports Medicine Fellowship Program

The pediatric (primary care) sports medicine program is an ACGME-accredited, one-year fellowship open to physicians who have completed an accredited residency program in the fields of Pediatrics, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, or Emergency Medicine.   

Fellows will develop expertise in the area of primary care sports medicine including the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal injuries, musculoskeletal ultrasound, medical problems related to sports participation, sports concussion, and procedures including injection therapy and casting.  Fellows will participate in weekly journal clubs and didactics, and see patients in the outpatient setting, the collegiate athletic training room, and other subspecialty clinics.  They will gain experience with sideline coverage and mass event coverage with professional sports, collegiate D1 and D3 athletics, high school football and rugby, and the NYC Marathon and other race events.  

The fellowship is a joint program in the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Orthopedic Surgery.

The fellowship participates in the Primary Care Sports Medicine NRMP match.

Fellows who successfully complete the fellowship will be eligible to sit for the board exam in Sports Medicine.

The Sports Medicine Fellowship is committed to recruiting exceptional fellows who will go on to become leaders in the field of primary care sports medicine.
