We at the fellowship program are committed to providing our fellow with an innovative, exciting and enjoyable training experience that is both challenging and rewarding. We are also committed to providing a flexible, supportive and responsive learning environment within a unique approach to the educational paradigm.
The fellow is encouraged to shape his/her own experience, including drawing on the wide range of training opportunities offered by our sponsoring institution, Mercyhealth, a community-based hospital and health care system. The fellowship program uses these resources to their utmost potential while allowing and valuing significant personal input from the sports medicine trainees themselves. Our goal is to help you develop into the best sports medicine physician you can be, ready and confident to practice and contribute as a Sports Medicine Physician as you start your career.
Thank you for your interest in our program. We hope you will explore our program and learn more about us by navigating our website. Please also feel free to contact us at any time. We look forward to the upcoming academic year and wish you the best in all of your endeavors.
