Frequently Asked Questions

What types of applicants do you typically accept into your program?
We look for Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited residency graduates in family medicine, med/peds, or emergency medicine residency programs. Because of the amount of adult and pediatric medicine in our ambulatory and sports medicine clinics, we do not accept applications from graduates of PM&R, pediatric or internal medicine programs at this time.

What attributes do you typically look for in an applicant?
We look for applicants with a commitment to primary care sports medicine evidenced through participation in game coverage, pre-participation physical exams and sports medicine conferences. We also seek out candidates with leadership potential who demonstrate a willingness to educate other trainees including students and residents.

Are there opportunities to rotate with your program?
Yes, we have limited opportunities to rotate with multiple sports medicine providers. We recommend applying early as spots are limited.
