Sports Medicine Rotations

Sports Medicine rotations are available to residents and 4th year students.
Rotations may be in two or four-week blocks.

All applicants (except UNC students choosing the ACSM 401 elective) must complete a visiting learner application.  Resident physicians must obtain a North Carolina license (this may take several months - so plan ahead).

Learning Objectives: At the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • Perform advanced exam of major joints injured in sports activities.
  • Give differential diagnosis of injuries to major joints.
  • Perform common sports medicine procedures.
  • Assess injured athletes at sporting events.
  • Learn basic skills of musculoskeletal ultrasound.

Learning Activities: The course should appeal to residents who are contemplating pursuit of a sports medicine fellowship and students who wish to gain greater skills in orthopedics and sports medicine. The rotation consists of training room evaluations, primary care sports medicine clinics, orthopedic clinics, student health sports medicine clinic, weekly seminar and game coverage.
