    bullet point  Sports Medicine Curriculum
     
     
    Common musculoskeletal problems and sports injuries are an everyday occurrence for patients everywhere. The curriculum at UPMC Shadyside offers a plentiful variety of exposures to primary care sports medicine. The Shadyside Family Medicine Residency was one of the first programs to offer an accredited Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship in the country.

    Residents will be taught how to evaluate and treat orthopaedic problems and musculoskeletal injuries throughout their residency training. Exposure to sports medicine occurs during Emergency Room rotations at UPMC Shadyside and the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, training room exposure at a local college, acute visits at the Family Health Center, and in the dedicated month long sports medicine rotation during the second year and orthopaedics rotation during the third year.

    The sports medicine fellow, sports medicine faculty members, and family medicine faculty members are available to precept office visits with residents and act as consultants, who, together with the resident develop treatment plans for athletes and patients. Weekly didactic sessions during dedicated rotations and one-on-one precepting are hallmarks of the sports medicine and orthopaedic curriculum here at Shadyside.
