We are one of the only Emergency Medicine based sports medicine fellowship programs in the country and we are proud of the top-notch curriculum that we have developed. With the support of Medstar Health, the leader in medical care for athletes and active individuals in the region, our program draws upon the depth and breadth of experience of our faculty in Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, PM&R, orthopedics, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Radiology.
Our fellows also work closely with the faculty and fellows from other primary care sports medicine programs in the National Capital Region, coming together for weekly lectures, didactic sessions, and ultrasound training.
Our fellows have ample opportunity throughout the year to provide on-site coverage at sporting events including high school, college, and professional sporting events and road races. They also have a 2 week ski-clinic elective rotation in Park City.
Our graduates have gone on to successful careers in community and academic sports medicine, and as team physicians. We count among them team physicians in the CAA, US Rugby, Washington Ballet, WNBA, NHL, NFL, MLS, NBA, & NFL.
Our fellows have extensive experience in the clinic setting as well as in the athletic training room and on the sidelines for high school, collegiate, and professional athletic events. Fellows participate in on-site medical care for several long-distance road races including two marathons. Additionally, our fellows function as an attending physician in one of MedStar’s community hospital emergency departments and will have the opportunity to teach medical students from Georgetown University, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, and University of Virginia, as well as residents from multiple programs and multiple specialties as well.
