Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship
In 2008, the Department of Family Medicine joined with the Department of Orthopedics & Rehabilitation to establish a year-long ACGME-Accredited Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship. The program holds clinics at Gabriel Park, Richmond, Scappoose, and in Orthopedics 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.
The curriculum is designed to meet all the ACGME requirements for Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowships. Curriculum activities include:
- One half day or shift of continuity care in the fellow's primary specialty.
- Sports Medicine clinic at both Family Medicine and Orthopedic clinics.
- Orthopedics with the OHSU Orthopedic & Rehabilitation department
- Mass participation event coverage, University and high school training room coverage
- Sports Nutrition, Exercise Physiology, and Sports Psychology
- Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
