Sports Medicine Fellowship
The fellowship has a full five year accreditation and meets all requirements of the ACGME.
Training opportunities include working with athletes at both the University of Michigan and Eastern Michigan University as well as working with the UM’s MedSport group and our exciting multi-disciplinary faculty.
The Fellowship is 12 months in length and provides comprehensive clinical and academic training in primary care sports medicine. Additional opportunities for research development are available.
Fellowship graduates will be fully prepared and eligible to take the examination for the Certificate of Added Qualification in Sports Medicine (CAQ) offered by their appropriate specialty Board.
Fellows will have the opportunity to rotate through all clinical sites within the fellowship and will maintain a longitudinal clinical experience within their core specialty.
Besides the outstanding resources of the University of Michigan, MedSport and our exciting athletic opportunities, we have nine faculty who currently hold CAQ’s in Sports Medicine with whom you will have the chance to work with and learn from.
The first fellow in this training program graduated June 1993. The fellowship was first accredited by the ACGME in September 1996, and re-accredited in 2001 and 2007.
We are excited to expand the fellowship in 2009 to a second fellow and encourage the opportunity for research in Sports Medicine upon completion for interested fellows.
