This one-year, ACGME accredited fellowship is lead by the Program Director for Sports Medicine, Matthew Grady, MD, CAQSM (CHOP); the Associate Program Director and co-founder of the Primary Care Sports Medicine Program at Penn, Gary W. Dorshimer, MD, FACP, CAQSM (Pennsylvania Hospital); the other co-founder of the Primary Care Sports Medicine Program at Penn and the Assistant Program Director, Rahul Kapur, MD, BCSM (Presbyterian Hospital and University of Pennsylvania Sports Medicine Center).
Although the content and rotations have changed very little since the program's inception in 1998 (except to be enhanced), our academic and accrediting affiliation will be through Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), the #1 Children's Hospital in the country. We will continue our training program at CHOP, Pennsylvania Hospital and at the University of Pennsylvania to bring a well rounded experience in caring for recreational, high school, college, and professional athletes. Heavy emphasis on the musculoskeletal system and evaluation and non-operative treatment of sports injuries is complemented by a broad overview of medical aspects of care for athletes. Training room experiences include high school, college and professional teams. At least one research project is required during the fellowship year. Opportunities for teaching students and residents, and opportunities for publication and presentations at national meetings, are afforded at all clinical sites.
We will accept applications from residents completing training in Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, and Emergency Medicine. In addition to the AMSSMuniversal application, we desire 3 letters of recommendation and the usual documents on prior training. Upon completion of the fellowship, the graduate will be eligible to take the Board Examination in Sports Medicine. The other requirement is a commitment to excellence and the passion to pursue a solid learning experience in primary care sports medicine.
