Sports Medicine Fellowship

Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island - Brown University
Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship

The first primary care Sports Medicine fellowship in the State of RI.


The Brown University Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship is a twelve-month fellowship sponsored by the Brown University Department of Family Medicine. This ACGME and Brown University accredited fellowship is open to graduates of ACGME accredited residencies in Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine. 

Fellows will be trained in all areas of primary care sports medicine including illness and injury related to exercise, physiology, pharmacology, radiology, sports psychology, and exercise and wellness counseling. The fellowship will implement a curriculum in musculoskeletal ultrasound, teaching diagnostic ultrasound as well as techniques in ultrasound-guided injections. Clinical exposure to fluoroscopically guided spine injections are also included in the curriculum. Fellows will be exposed to a diverse faculty including five physicians who hold certificates of added qualification in primary care sports medicine, orthopedic surgeons who specialize in sports medicine, and the head team physicians at the University of Rhode Island, Providence College, and Johnson and Wales University.

The fellowship boasts a wide variety of experiences including high school football coverage, college and university sports coverage, minor league baseball coverage, as well as coverage of mass participation events. Fellows will cover the University of Rhode Island football team, as well as winter and spring sports for Providence College and Johnson and Wales University. This includes coverage of the 2015 NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Division I Champion, Providence Friars.  In addition, fellows will present at both local and national conferences and have the opportunity to participate in research and writing projects. 

Interested applicants can apply through the ERAS system beginning in July. We encourage early submission through the ERAS system as interviews are offered on a rolling basis.  In addition, residents are welcome to request participation in two to four week elective rotations in sports medicine through the fellowship. For more information about the fellowship or elective rotations please contact our program coordinator, Judy Walker.  If you would like to schedule an elective rotation with our fellowship, please e-mail . Please include your CV and a request for your preferred rotation dates.
