The fellows, faculty and staff of the Utah Valley Sports Medicine Fellowship in Provo, Utah, invite third and fourth year medical students with an interest in Primary Care Sports Medicine to come and spend a month with us for a rotation.
Rotations are granted on a first come, first serve basis and are offered most months of the year, depending on availability. Priority is given to physicians who anticipate pursuing a Sports Medicine Fellowship. We are committed to exposing students to an educationally progressive learning environment.
Students who do a rotation with us have the opportunity to participate in educational lectures designed for the sports medicine fellows. Lectures teach musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal topics pertinent to the field of Primary Care Sports Medicine.
Students are encouraged to be contributors on the service and participate in all aspects of patient care. They are exposed to evaluation and management of fractures, outpatient injury care and primary care for the athletic population.
Education in casting and splinting, local injections, reading of musculoskeletal radiographs and observing musculoskeletal ultrasound are also part of the rotation.
Depending on the time of year, they have the opportunity to participate in training rooms at both Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University. They also have the opportunity to cover events with the sports medicine fellows at both of these universities, the Utah Flash (NBA D-League team) and local high schools.
