Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship

The departments of Family Medicine and Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation sponsor an ACGME-Accredited Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship.  The program holds clinics at OHSU Family Medicine at Gabriel Park, Richmond, Scappoose and in Orthopaedics at the Center for Health & Healing.

The program teaches fellows to evaluate sports medicine issues in a patient panel including professional athletes, recreationalists, children, pregnant women and seasoned athletes. The Sports Medicine program is a well-known, well-respected entity in the Portland community. Faculty and fellows have been functioning as team doctors for Portland State, Lewis & Clark and most area high schools. Fellows and faculty also serve as medical advisors to the Portland Marathon, Hood to Coast, Oregon Special Olympics, Little League Softball World Series and more.

Fellowship graduates will be qualified and expected to sit for the Sports Medicine Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) examination.

  • One half day or shift of continuity care in the fellow's primary specialty.
