The fellow will work closely with the sports medicine faculty of the Department of Family Medicine at Carolinas HealthCare System as well as nationally-recognized orthopedic sports medicine physicians.
The orthopedic clinics, primary care sports medicine clinics, primary care clinic at Elizabeth Family Medicine and the training rooms of UNC Charlotte and Johnson C. Smith University will provide substantial hands-on experience for the fellow. Teaching is often one-on-one and provides an opportunity to learn various physical exam techniques, and procedures.
