In conjunction with the McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, 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.
The orthopaedic sports medicine team at Northwestern University provides care to the athletes at Northwestern University, the Chicago Cubs, the Chicago Blackhawks and the Chicago Bears. They use operative and non-operative management of sports injuries, including care of meniscal and ligament injuries, cartilage replacement, hip arthroscopy and biological resurfacing.
