Welcome! The UMass Chan Medical School and Exercise Sports Medicine Fellowship is a twelve-month fellowship sponsored by the UMass Chan Department of Family Medicine & Community Health. It is open to graduates of ACGME-accredited residencies in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Med/Peds and Emergency Medicine. There are three positions offered annually. 

The fellowship program emphasizes all aspects of primary care sports medicine including: fracture care; sports injury prevention; concussion; strength and conditioning; physical therapy; illness and injury related to exercise; physiology; nutrition; pharmacology; sports psychology and ethical/medical-legal aspects of exercise and sports.

The fellowship distinguishes itself by having one of the largest CAQ faculty along with one of the most extensive and diverse team coverage experiences. Our fellows have direct primary responsibility for training room rounds and game coverage for: high schools; Division I, II, and III colleges and the Boston Red Sox Minor League system. The fellows' sporting event coverage includes the Bay State Games and the Boston Marathon

A core component to the fellowship is the extensive clinical experience gained at the UMassMemorial Sports Medicine Center. The Sports Medicine Center is a high volume, multi-disciplinary sports medicine center treating athletes of all ages and abilities from the recreational to the professional. Research and scholarly work are emphasized throughout, including teaching, required research, writing projects, presentations at national conferences, and formal didactics.

The fellowship has a unique depth and diversity of experiences that provides an unparalleled fellowship experience. Please contact me with any questions.
