Goals and characteristics
The UCSF Fellowship in Sports Medicine is designed to provide the fellow with significant exposure to all aspects of knee, shoulder and elbow surgery. The combined patient volume of four staff surgeons provides ample clinical exposure to the operative and non-operative treatment of both arthroscopic sports medicine procedures and reconstructive procedures. The fellow will be exposed to approximately 300 cases during the clinical year. The patient referral base encompasses two university-based hospitals. Both inpatient and outpatient operative settings are utilized.
The fellow will participate as an extension of the faculty. Fellows will be responsible for patient care, resident education, and participation in weekly basic science and clinical conferences. Participation in attending staff clinics will provide exposure to patient clinical care and office management of sports related injuries.
Research opportunities are incorporated into the fellowship. University facilities include PhD-staffed, fully equipped research laboratories in areas of biomechanics and cell biology under the supervision of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. Opportunities for both in-house and external grant funding exist for collaboration in valid clinical or basic science research projects. Publication of at least one paper in a peer-reviewed journal is expected.
The goal of the fellowship is to produce a well-rounded orthopaedic surgeon interactive with expertise in the care of athletes of all levels. Fellows receive extensive training in arthroscopic and reconstructive procedures as well as non-operative treatment of athletic injuries. We also feel that the academic environment of the UCSF Orthopaedic Department and the high level of sub-specialty expertise enriches the education of our fellows.
Successful completion of an orthopaedic surgery program is required, as is a California State medical license.
