Clinical Experience

As a Primary Care Sports Medicine fellow, you will spend time caring for a diverse athletic population including men and women of every age and athletic ability. You will also develop your expertise in diagnosing and managing medical illnesses and injuries related to sports and exercise including:

  • injury prevention
  • pre-participation evaluation

Pittsburgh is renowned for its excellent professional, collegiate, and high school teams. Access to these teams allows us to offer our fellows the most diverse experiences available in the field today. In addition to treating athletes on the field and in the training rooms, fellows will have the opportunity to see patients during regularly scheduled sports medicine office hours and injury clinics.

  • 1-2 half-days as primary provider at a sports medicine clinic per week
