Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship
The purpose of our Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship program is to train primary care specialists in the unique aspects of sports medicine. The post-residency training program is a one-year fellowship for two fellows with application open to those who have completed a Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine or Pediatric residency program prior to fellowship. Trainees will maintain competence in their primary specialty but will have expertise in sports medicine as it applies to the exercising individual, this includes injury prevention, musculoskeletal injuries, visceral organ injuries, and other medical issues. They will be clinicians, consultants, teachers, and leaders of medicine. They will be knowledgeable about the unique needs of the athletic population and will approach their care from an individual, systems, and population-based directions.
Our Didactics Program sets us apart from other sports medicine fellowships in the amount of time we allocate to learning that includes lecture, hands-on instruction with equipment, gross anatomy lab, and more that is tailored to the needs of the fellow. In addition, we provide special preparation for the final board exam using Canvas. We have a consistent weekly schedule that provides a well-rounded approach to training competent sports medicine physicians.
Research is an integral part of our training program at LSUHS, not only enhancing our educational program but assists us in developing therapeutic interventions that enhance athletic performance and prevent injuries. We dedicate time for our fellows to work in our human performance lab under trained kinesiologists on our campus, collecting data, writing abstracts, grant proposals and more.
