The Sports Medicine Center
The Cone Health Sports Medicine Fellowship program is located in the Sports Medicine Center on The Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital campus. The office has four treatment rooms, a room specifically for orthotic preparation and a room specifically for performing musculoskeletal ultrasounds. There is also a conference room where the weekly seminar is held.
The office is fully electronic (no paper charts), using Cone HealthLink (EPIC) for scheduling, billing and EMR. Radiographs and other images are available electronically through the PACs system which is integrated into EPIC. In-house ultrasound can be loaded directly into the medical record as well.
Exercise treadmills are done on campus at the Moses Cone Heart and Vascular Center.
There are 9½ clinics each week. Each fellow has two regularly scheduled clinics per week with a third clinic occurring bi-weekly on Friday mornings. Friday afternoons are set aside for seminar from 2 to 5 p.m.
