Sports Medicine

Curriculum

The Sports Medicine curriculum is presented during protected weekly didactic time and includes education on anatomy, physiology, general medical conditions, procedures, ethics and practice management. Fellows also contribute to the education of the JPS Family Medicine residents by preparing and giving lectures, as well as hands-on guidance in the clinic.

Our fellows rotate with several local specialists in the treatment of Sports Medicine and musculoskeletal disorders. They gain experience from Sport Medicine board certified orthopedic surgeons, podiatrists, hand surgeons and Private Primary Care Sports Medicine physicians. They also gain extra experience in the care of pediatric fractures through a partnership with orthopedic surgeons at our local children’s hospital. The rotations are based on two month blocks and a sample schedule is provided below.

PREREQUISITES

To sit for the Sports Medicine CAQ exam, applicants must have graduated from an ACGME accredited residency program in family medicine, emergency medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, or physical medicine and rehabilitation.

TRAINING

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.

TEACHING

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.

INTEGRATION

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.
