Sports Medicine

Stanford University offers a multi-disciplinary fellowship that provides the opportunity for physicians trained in a variety of primary specialities to obtain sub-specialty training in sports medicine.  The goal of the fellowship is to teach the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for effective clinical practice in sports medicine. This fellowship provides physicians with hands-on clinical training, teaching experience, and instruction in research methodology, with the goal of preparing them to become skilled clinicians and leaders in academic sports medicine.  The fellowship currently accommodates three fellowship positions: two for PM&R physicians and one for primary care physicians.  All positions are ACGME accredited and is filled through the National Residency Match Program (NRMP).
