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.

We are here to provide our members valuable information, including: A comprehensive list of fellowship programs, how to pursue fellowships, elective opportunities, mentorship support, publications, and various clinical resources within the world of sports medicine.
