Sports Medicine Fellowship Requirements

The Sports Medicine Fellowship is a one-year program that leads to a certificate of added qualification (CAQ) in sports medicine by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). Candidates for this fellowship/subspecialty residency may enter after completion of an AOA approved residency in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine, Preventive Medicine, or Emergency Medicine. Certification is granted through the primary certifying board. This is a dynamic fellowship/subspecialty residency that provides an outpatient education in PM&R, OMM and Orthopedic Surgery. Rotations are also completed in Pediatrics, the Differently Abled Athlete, and Internal Medicine.  Time is also allotted to concentrate on other Sports Medicine related areas in which a fellow would like to focus. Fellows will participate in an active Sports Medicine outpatient clinic at NSU and provide medical coverage for NSU NCAA Division II sports and North Broward High School District sports. They will also provide event coverage for various teams and tournaments throughout the year. Fellows will also have exposure to professional and semi-professional athletic teams, Special Olympics, and mass events.
