Welcome | Sports Medicine Fellowship
Welcome to the University of Louisville (UofL) Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship Program. As you review our website, consider the many opportunities available to you in preparation for private practice, a specialist in academic Medicine, or a team physician.
The Department of Family and Geriatric Medicine established a Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship in 2006. It is a challenging, 12-month ACGME-accredited fellowship, providing comprehensive clinical and academic training. By completing the program, fellows will gain experience in diagnosing and treating injuries and illnesses common to athletes and other active individuals. Successful completion of the program prepares the fellow to satisfactorily complete the examination for Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in Sports Medicine.
Fellows will work directly with UofL NCAA Division 1 athletes in all sports, as well as athletes at Bellarmine University (NCAA Division II) and Spalding University (Division III). The Fellow is provided the opportunity to learn from and serve the community through providing medical care as Team Physician for local high schools, as well as Mass Event Coverage including the Louisville Triple Crown of Running, the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon/mini-Marathon, and the Ironman competition. Dedicated patient care will be provided in our Owsley Brown Frazier Sports Medicine Clinic and the Continuity Clinic.
The faculty is committed to advancing the field of sports medicine and expects that same level of commitment from our fellows, therefore the year is designed to be busy in order to provide an outstanding experience and excellent preparation for life beyond training.
Thank you for your interest
