Sports Medicine Fellowship

In conjunction with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s McGaw Medical Center, we offer a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship in Primary Care Sports Medicine. In addition to excellent clinical training in sports medicine, our program's curriculum 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 such as the Chicago Marathon.

Our Sports Medicine fellow works with sports medicine department at Northwestern University to provide care to Division 1 athletes.
