Our Fellowship Graduates

The University of Michigan Sports Fellowship Program was an experience that I wouldn't trade for anything! I am forever grateful for matching at the U of M, as it was the perfect fit for me.  Not only did the fellowship offer a wide variety of surgical cases, but the mentorship that was provided was second-to-none and I still to this day don't hesitate to reach out to any of the staff that once trained me.  The mentorship truly develops into a friendship that will last for your career. Whether I was in the clinic or the OR, I woke up every morning with excitement to what that day held.  The opportunity for research is also immense, and you have the luxury to choose where to invest your time. Finally, the sports medicine experience is incredible with the opportunity to care for athletes at 2 difference division 1 NCAA programs.  Both the U of M and Eastern Michigan University have unique differences that help to hone your skills for caring for the athlete and interacting with the athletic training staff.  I currently am a head team physician for a Division 1 football program and a co-team physician in the NHL. My current interactions with the players and more importantly with the athletic trainers is all based on what I learned in this critical fellowship year. If I had to repeat the year over again, I would in a heart-beat. Out of all the years of education and training, this was by far the most exciting and fun.
