overview

The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) as of July 2016. We inspire and empower fellows to become Sports Medicine Specialists who provide the highest quality of care to athletes of all ages who are participating in club, high school, college, professional and recreational sports. We provide a comprehensive sports medicine education, aimed at developing life-long learners capable of being team physicians for high school, college and professional teams. We instill within our fellows the values of professionalism, academic leadership and compassion, while providing a flexible experience honoring self-care and family values.

Our primary teaching site is Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix, located in downtown Phoenix. Clinical experience is gained within our Sports Medicine Center and Sports Concussion Center. Fellows have the opportunity to provide on-site sports medicine coverage for a wide variety of club, high school and college teams. The program provides the flexibility that allows for fellows to individualize their educational experience to include electives in sports concussion care, pediatric orthopedic sports medicine, orthopedic spine surgery, upper extremity orthopedic surgery, foot and ankle orthopedic surgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, musculoskeletal imaging and orthopedic trauma.

Our faculty are a broad mix of employed and private practice physicians, giving us a unique hybrid model. Our faculty have extensive experience providing comprehensive sports medicine coverage at the high school, college and professional levels. Previous fellows trained by the faculty currently serve as college and professional team physicians locally and nationally.
