Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship

The multidisciplinary Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship provides a comprehensive experience in the operative and non-operative treatment of sports injuries of the knee, shoulder, elbow and hip. We offer fellows experience with arthroscopic and open techniques for meniscal repair, cartilage replacement, biological resurfacing, ligament repairs and complex reconstructions, as well as exposure in cadaver, biomechanics and psychomotor skills labs.

In conjunction with experts in primary care sports medicine, physiatry and physical/occupational therapy, the fellow will gain experience with the management of athletes at Northwestern University and professional athletes with on-site participation as part of the team caring for the Chicago Cubs, Blackhawks and Bears.

Fellows are expected to participate in a sports-focused curriculum, resident teaching, conferences, journal club and relevant clinical and/or basic research. Applicants must have successfully completed an ACGME-accredited orthopaedic surgical residency program. 

Learn more about the Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship Goals and Objectives. Apply through SFMatch. The deadline is Nov. 1.
