Sports Care.

This will be the only Emergency Medicine based fellowship in Sports Medicine in the Mid-Atlantic, and one of few in the country. We are extremely proud of the curriculum that we have developed. Our program will draw upon the depth and breadth of experience of faculty in Emergency Medicine, Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Orthopedics and has the support of MedStar Sports Medicine – the recognized leader in medical care for athletes and active individuals in the Washington/Baltimore area.

In addition, our fellows will work closely with the faculty and fellows from other primary care sports medicine programs in the National Capitol Region including the Uniformed Services University, Fairfax Family Medicine, and MedStar National Rehabilitation Center. These fellowship programs will come together for weekly lectures and ultrasound training. Below is the block schedule for the Sports Medicine Fellowship program being offered through the MedStar Georgetown/MedStar Washington Hospital Center programs:
