Director Sports Medicine Surgical Fellowship
The Orlando Health Sports Medicine Fellowship is accredited by the ACGME, allowing our eligible graduates to sit for the Sports Medicine sub-specialty board certification examination administered by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
The fellowship provides an opportunity for the fellows to participate under supervision in the care of athletes and patients of the Orlando Health System. The fellows also serve as a teacher for resident and students in sports medicine. In addition, it is expected that the fellows will participate in research projects with faculty members.
The Orlando Health Jewett Orthopaedic Institute has a robust research program and support staff and is involved in numerous national and international prospective randomized clinical trials. This enables us to stay at the forefront of the highest-level research and evidence based medicine in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Surgery.
The Orlando Health Sports Medicine Program participates in the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s “San Francisco Match”. As one of the participating programs, we agree to interview candidates during the designated time frame.
