Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship

Message from the Program Director


We are excited to offer a 12 month fellowship training program in Primary Care Sports Medicine (PCSM) at Albany Medical Center.

The fellowship was accredited in November 2010 and opened it’s doors for our 1st fellow the summer of 2011. We are the first PCSM fellowship nationwide to have a Med/Peds background, though are open to applicants from pediatrics, internal medicine, family medicine and emergency medicine residencies.

The PCSM fellowship has 5 primary care faculty members, plus another 5 sports-trained orthopaedic surgeons. The fellow spends time working with faculty at several sites, including a sports medicine practice in Latham, NY; the Capital Region Orthopaedic Associates offices at the Bone & Joint Center in Albany; and the University of Albany Student Health Center. Collegiate athletes are cared for at several sites, including Siena College and University of Albany who both have highly respected Division One programs.

Novel aspects of the Albany Medical Center PCSM fellowship include experiences in the Albany Medical College anatomy lab, biomechanics instruction at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, education in state of the art concussion management and exposure to a high volume of typical musculoskeletal problems.

Please review our fellowship web pages at your leisure, and don’t hesitate to call or email for more information.

Thank you!
