Message from the Fellowship

The CHRISTUS Health Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship is a comprehensive and unique 12-month immersive experience in the great city of San Antonio!  Our Fellowship is focused on providing high-quality educational sports medicine experiences and developing intelligent, thoughtful, and capable Sports Medicine physicians.

The faculty group is comprised of fellowship-trained specialists within the CHRISTUS Health System.  We offer clinical rotations in both adult and pediatric sports and orthopedic clinics, with point-of-care opportunities in the use of MSK Ultrasound.  We maintain strong relationships with both the University of Incarnate Word and Our Lady of the Lake University athletics departments, as well as multiple local high schools.  Fellows also cover multiple community events, including the legendary San Antonio Stockshow and Rodeo!  Didactic sessions are weekly and intended to be educational and collegial.  Finally, fellows will participate in longitudinal scholarly projects, including lectures, skills sessions, community outreach, and research participation.

As mentioned, our program is able to provide a pediatric rotational track because of our relationship with the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, a world-class facility that provides multi-specialty pediatric care.  This is in addition to the available rotational experiences in radiology, therapy, etc.  

CHRISTUS Health and the Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship are excited about our continued evolution.  We are glad you have come here to find more information on our program and are happy to discuss our program with you!
