Primary Care Sports Medicine is a dynamic and rapidly growing subspecialty in the medical profession. The practice of sports medicine is the application of the physician's knowledge, skills, and attitudes to those engaged in sport and exercise. Primary Care Sports Medicine specialists recognize the need for a unique skill set in providing care for athletic patients. The goal of our program is to provide the sports medicine resident with the appropriate training to evaluate and optimize the athlete-patient's performance while mitigating the effects of acute and chronic disease and injury on health and performance. This program is designed to meet all of the special requirements put forth by the American Osteopathic Association for training programs in primary care sports medicine. Those skills extend across a vast population of patients: pediatric athletes, high school athletes, university athletes, professional athletes, disabled athletes, geriatric athletes, and the general population who participate in sporting activities for health and fitness.
