Halifax Health – Sports Medicine Fellowship provides a well-rounded, multi-disciplinary approach to fellowship education.  We follow a dedicated musculoskeletal ultrasound curriculum to provide our sports fellow with a longitudinal experience in the use of the musculoskeletal ultrasound as well as a board preparation lecture series in anticipation of sitting for the Certificate of Added Qualification in Sports Medicine through the ABFM.  Our fellowship is involved with Halifax Health Family Medicine Residency, and our fellow has the opportunity to precept in the Sports Medicine Clinic as well as teach residents on musculoskeletal topics.

Halifax Health – Sports Medicine Fellowship curriculum provides experience in our musculoskeletal clinic as well as with community preceptors in PM&R sports medicine, musculoskeletal radiology, podiatry, orthopedic surgery, and concussion evaluation and management.  Event coverage includes football associated with Bethune-CookmanUniversity and MainlandHigh School; lacrosse with EmbryRiddleAeronauticalUniversity; baseball with the Daytona Tortugas (High-A Affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds); endurance events such as the Tomoka Marathon – and many more opportunities throughout the year!
