The Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship is open to board-certified physicians and residency graduates in Family Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Emergency Medicine.
The fellowship is a one-year program and is a collaborative effort between the University of Missouri Departments of Family and Community Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Orthopaedic Surgery.
The Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship program is fully accredited, and upon successfully completing their year-long training, fellowship graduates meet the requirements to take the Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) examination in Sports Medicine.
Clinical training for the Sports Medicine Fellowship includes four to five weekly sessions of ambulatory practice in addition to the required one session per week of primary training clinic. Sports medicine fellows will rotate with different subspecialists on a monthly rotation to broaden their knowledge and skillset in addition to scheduled monthly sessions with an on-site musculoskeletal radiologist. Fellows will have regular access to ultrasound at all sports medicine clinics.
