The Oklahoma University Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship is a one-year cooperative program between the OU-TU School of Community Medicine Department of Family and Community Medicine and Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center. The one year fellowship contains didactic course work and clinical experiences related to prevention and treatment of non-surgical orthopedic problems and injuries.
The program is offered to qualified physicians from Family Practice, Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine and the United States Military who are selectively admitted to the program. Clinical experiences include private practice sports medicine clinics, orthopedic specialty hospitals, regional medical centers, on site management of sporting events and injury clinics at two Division I universities.
The program also offers exposure to team physician responsibilities including coverage of the Los Angeles Dodgers AA baseball team, University of Tulsa, Oral Roberts University, Northeastern State University, Tulsa Athletics semi-pro soccer and a local class 6-A high school team. Fellows also have the opportunity to plan and cover mass sporting events throughout Tulsa, and the State of Oklahoma. We have been the medical team for the Route 66 Marathon for 10 years now.
