Sports Medicine Fellowship

In conjunction with the McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University, we offer a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship in Primary Care Sports Medicine. In addition to providing excellent clinical training in sports medicine, our program offers a curriculum that includes research, advocacy and community outreach activities. Our sports medicine fellow assists with providing medical coverage at a variety of sporting events at the high school and college level, as well as mass-participation events.
