Sports Medicine Fellowship
Follow the link below to learn more about the Orthopaedic Surgery Sports Medicine Division.
The University of Virginia Orthopaedic Sports Medicine program is located in Charlottesville, Virginia. The goal is to provide extensive training in both operative and non-operative treatment in sports medicine problems.
The patient population consists of competitive and recreational athletes from surrounding high schools, colleges, preparatory schools, and some professional athletes. The Fellow is an active part of the sports medicine team providing coverage for all University of Virginia and James Madison University athletes, including experience in the training room. Fellows will gain operative experience with Dr. Mark Miller, Dr. David Diduch, Dr. Winston Gwathmey, Dr. Brian Werner, and the fellowship director, Dr. Steve Brockmeier.
The experience covers the spectrum of sports medicine problems, emphasizing a high volume of arthroscopic and open knee and shoulder cases, as well as knee and shoulder replacement and hip arthroscopy. In addition, dedicated time will be spent with the Foot and Ankle and Hand Divisions for experience with elbow, wrist, and ankle arthroscopy and reconstructive procedures.
Fellows benefit from a comprehensive conference schedule. The ample research opportunities with the faculty include clinical, anatomic, and basic science topics, and are facilitated by our full-time research coordinator, Dr. Joe Hart, PhD, to maximize opportunities to publish during the year.
This fellowship participates in the San Francisco sports match program.
