Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship

The Wright State University Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship is a one-year American College of Graduate Medical Examination (ACGME) accredited fellowship which currently accepts two fellows per year. It is sponsored by the Wright State University Emergency Medicine Residency Program and is designed for graduates of emergency medicine, family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics or physical medicine and rehabilitation residencies. After successful completion of the fellowship, the graduate will be able to sit for the Certificate of Added Qualification exam in Primary Care Sports Medicine.

The fellowship was established in 1991 and was based at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center. It became fully accredited in 1995. Due to the closure of the hospital, the sports medicine staff and faculty relocated to a newer and larger facility, the Kettering Sports Medicine Center. The primary site of clinical duties for the fellows is the Kettering Sports Medicine Center, a state of the art facility which houses a rehabilitation center and physician offices, and serves as a base of operation for the staff of physicians, athletic trainers and physical therapists. The sports medicine team provides care for patients of all ages from early childhood to the elderly. The fellowship provides an opportunity to care for middle school, high school, undergraduate and professional athletes. Event coverage includes football, soccer, track, baseball, basketball and wrestling.
