Orthopedic Sports Medicine Fellowship

Methodist Sports Medicine continues a leadership role through orthopedic sports medicine fellowships. Methodist Sports Medicine is recognized as having one of the preeminent sports medicine fellowship programs, offering orthopedic fellowships to highly qualified candidates each year.

“Fellowship-trained,” means a physician has completed four years of medical school, five years of an orthopedic residency, and one year of in-depth specialty training in one specific area in which the physician will specialize, under the guidance of a top orthopedic specialist. Now into its third decade, the Methodist Sports Medicine fellowship program proudly wishes our most recent graduates well in in their new practices and welcome in our new fellow.
