For Health Professionals

Sports Medicine Fellowship

Christiana Care, a leader in health care education, offers a one-year fellowship in sports medicine. Started in 2007, this program is based in a fully-accredited family-medicine residency program that is one of the oldest in the nation. The fellowship offers solid experience in sports and recreation injuries as well as medical conditions affecting athletes and active people of all ages. Clinical exposure to exercise physiology, nutrition, sports psychology and radiology is also integral to the program.

Scholarly activity is integral to the program and is assisted by the Health Services Research Group within the Department of Family and Community Medicine. Sideline, training room, and mass-participation event coverage is coordinated through the sports medicine group and our affiliate sites, University of Delaware and Goldey-Beacom College. By the end of the training, fellows will be able to work independently in any sports-medicine practice environment.

We accept two candidates each year who have graduated from an ACGME accredited allopathic or osteopathic program in family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, emergency medicine, or physical medicine and rehabilitation.
