Orthopaedics Sports Medicine Fellowship

The goal of Cleveland Clinic's Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship is to develop in the full-trained orthopaedic surgeon special diagnostic management and research skills, both surgical and non-surgical, that are peculiar to athletic medicine and trauma.

Our Sports Medicine Clinic is involved in the care of high school, college, recreational, and professional athletes. We provide team physician coverage for area high school teams as well as for Cleveland State University (Division I), John Carroll University (Division III), Baldwin Wallace, Oberlin, and Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA), and the Cleveland Indians (MLB).

In addition to developing clinical and surgical skills, the Fellow is expected to assume a teaching role with our orthopaedic residents.The Fellow is expected to develop an understanding of physiology as it relates to athletes and is expected to complete a research project of his/her choice, in either basic or clinical science, to be prepared for publication upon completion of the fellowship.

Upon completion of the fellowship, the Fellow becomes a member of the alumni group, the Warthog Society. For more comprehensive information about the Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship program and the Warthog Society please visit www.ccfwarthogsociety.org/.
