WellSpan York Hospital Sports Medicine Fellowship

Welcome to the WellSpan Health York Hospital Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship!

 We are proud of our community-based sports medicine fellowship program and all the educational opportunities we have to offer.

 Our faculty include former team physicians for Notre Dame, Penn State, and UConn and collectively we have trained over 50 sports medicine fellows.  Our fellowship program is comprised of a core faculty of primary care sports medicine physicians and orthopedic surgeons with additional training coming from orthopedic subspecialists, neurologists, athletic trainers, physical therapists, sports nutritionists, and psychologists.  We believe our collaborative approach has provided a comprehensive and thorough learning experience that has prepared our graduates to practice Sports Medicine at any desired level.

 As a fellow your coverage responsibilities would include the following:

  • Your own local high school football team

  • Gettysburg College (Division III Athletics)

    • Football

    • Men and Women’s Soccer

    • Field Hockey

    • Men’s Lacrosse

 In addition to the clinical and sideline experiences our fellowship program will also provide time to attend the following sports medicine conferences:

  • Gamechanger Sports Medicine Conference

  • Sports Psychology Symposium

 Our fellowship is also dedicated to improving and empowering the specialty of sports medicine through research and teaching.  The Emig Research Center at WellSpan Health provides access to a multitude of educators and statisticians who continue to help our fellows complete their research and quality improvement projects during their fellowship year.  There are often additional opportunities for our fellows to contribute to writing book chapters as well as review articles.  Throughout the year our fellows will help with teaching sports medicine to our Family Medicine Residents through didactic sessions, one-on-one teaching in clinics, and procedural workshops (ultrasound and casting/splinting).

 With a dedicated faculty, amazing coverage opportunities, and incredible academic support, our fellows finish with hundreds of ultrasound-guided procedures and acute fracture management proficiency as well as mass event directorship, research, quality improvement, and teaching skills that make well-rounded and highly marketable sports medicine physicians who would be an asset in any community practice, private practice, academic institution, or professional team organization.

 If this sounds like a good fit, we hope you’ll reach out to us and consider joining our team.  We look forward to meeting you and growing our sports medicine family!
