Research is a critical part of the mission of the Sports Medicine Service. The fellow will build upon their existing research skills with extensive exposure to methodology, study design, and critical data review. Each fellow will be expected to complete three original research projects (basic science or clinical research) that are appropriate for publication in a peer reviewed journal. One of these projects will be presented at the fellow’s end of the year Grand Rounds. In addition to this requirement, there will be numerous other research opportunities including invited review articles, book chapters, and technique videos.

Fellows will be given ½ day per week for research and this will be monitored via weekly research meetings with the entire sports medicine faculty and research staff. These meetings will allow the fellow to improve scientific presentation skills as well as an opportunity to receive constructive criticism of their projects. The departmental facilities and research resources will be available to the fellow.
