About the Fellowship .

Georgetown/ MedStar Washington Hospital Center’s Sports Medicine Fellowship Program earned ACGME accreditation in 2013. This one year program prepares fellows for their Board Certification in Sports Medicine and for a dual career in Emergency Medicine and Sports Medicine. Interested applicants should use the ERAS Fellowships website to proceed with the application process.

Sports Care .

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

Our fellows 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 come together for weekly lectures and ultrasound training. Our program has a world renowned musculoskeletal ultrasound program with weekly hands-on ultrasound courses with RDS-musculoskeletal certified professionals; these professionals  teach musculoskeletal ultrasound nationally.

Our fellows have ample opportunity throughout the year to provide on-site coverage at sporting events.  This will include events at the high school, collegiate, and professional level as well as multiple road races.  During the year, this will average approximately 2 events per week, which may be during the evenings or on weekends. Additionally, each fellow is offered a 2 week ski elective in Park City for fracture and acute injury management.

Sports Medicine Schedule .

Our fellows have extensive experience in the clinic setting as well as in the athletic training room and on the sidelines for high school, collegiate, and professional athletic events. Fellows participate in on-site medical care for several long-distance road races including two marathons. Additionally, our fellows function as an attending physician in one of MedStar’s community hospital emergency departments and will have the opportunity to teach medical students from Georgetown University, USUH, and VCU as well as residents. Remember that the deadline for ERAS applications is September 15th. Please contact Dr. Delasobera or Dr. Hudson for additional details or questions.
