Our curriculum is designed to be both longitudinal and competency based with year-round clinic exposure and monthly rotational experiences. Fellows spend an average of six half days per week in clinic at Utah Valley Sports Medicine. The remaining time is portioned among primary specialty clinics, the concussion clinic, research, radiology/MRI reading and university training room coverage. Fellows become skilled in PRP injections, joint injections, gait analysis, musculoskeletal ultrasound, fracture care, casting and splinting, concussion management and return to play recommendations. Fellows also participate in the organization and direction of a mass participation event such as the 2002 Winter Olympics, the State High School Wrestling Tournament or the St. George Triathlon.
Staffed by Fellowship-trained neuropsychologists and sports medicine physicians, our state-of-the-art concussion clinic currently averages 800 patients per year. Fellows will be at the forefront of medicine in concussion and sports-related mild traumatic brain injury management. Sports psychology, fMRI, balance and neuropsychological testing are also part of this coveted clinic experience.
