Why Sports Medicine?

It's pretty clear that you love emergency medicine, but do you love sports as well? Did you know you can incorporate your passion for athletics into your daily practice by pursuing a fellowship in sports medicine as an emergency physician? Truth. Sports medicine is an ABMS-recognized fellowship pathway through emergency medicine, which is rapidly growing in popularity and opportunity.

Whether you plan to pursue a fellowship or just have a general love of sports, you are in luck because acute athletic injuries present to the emergency department on a fairly routine basis. Recent reports estimate over 4 million emergency department visits annually for injuries related to participation in sports and recreation.

Joining EMRA Committees is easy and FREE.

Just log into your EMRA account and select which one(s) you wish to join.

Once you join, you will receive an invitation to be part of the EMRA Committee Basecamp, which helps facilitate communication and collaboration.
