Each fellow will work closely with the sports medicine faculty of the Department of Family Medicine at Atrium Health as well as nationally-recognized orthopedic physicians.

The orthopedic clinics, primary care sports medicine clinics, primary care clinic at Elizabeth Family Medicine and the training rooms of UNC Charlotte and Johnson C. Smith University will provide substantial hands-on experience for the fellow. Teaching is often one-on-one and provides an opportunity to learn various physical exam techniques, and procedures.

There is also allotted time for research and opportunities for the fellow to pursue his or her own interest in sports medicine.

Fellows will alternate work schedules monthly. Fellows will alternate game coverage halfway through season between Division I and Division II sports.
