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. There is also time allotted to concentrate on other Sports Medicine related areas in which a resident would like to focus. Residents will participate in an active Sports Medicine outpatient clinic at NSU. They will also provide medical coverage for the NSU NCAA Division II sports and North Broward High School District sports. They will provide event coverage for various teams and tournaments throughout the year.

The Correctional Medicine Fellowship is a two-year fellowship leading to both board certification and a Master of Public Health degree (M.P.H.). The fellowship is open to any physician (M.D. or D.O.) either currently in correctional medicine or desiring to be in correctional medicine. Because of the program's uniqueness, the fellowship stipend plus other payments put the pay scale at the entry level of a correctional physician in the public sector. The fellowship includes: inpatient/outpatient supervised clinical experience in acute and chronic settings in jails/prisons, medicolegal experiences and responsibilities, quality management and review, and mortality review management and control.
