Orthopedic Sports Medicine Fellowship - Vacancy

The Scottish Rite for Children and UT Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) Sports Medicine Fellowship is a new 12-month ACGME accredited fellowship program with an emphasis on pediatric sports medicine. Led by Philip L. Wilson, M.D., and Henry B. Ellis, M.D., this fellowship is an extraordinary clinical training program that allows physicians to master the skills needed to manage the full gamut of sport-related injuries in adults and pediatric patients including conditions such as osteochondritis dissecans (OCD), discoid meniscus, shoulder instability, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and a variety of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction options from a physeal-sparing to a traditional ACL with or without a lateral extra-articular tenodesis (LET). The fellowship will include exposure to fracture management that is common in athletes as well as osteotomies when indicated in athletes. 

The Sports Medicine program at Scottish Rite and UTSW participates in high level research as well as exposure to several multicenter study groups. The fellowship will also include experiences with quality improvement as this institution hosts a multicenter quality improvement initiative called SCORE - Sports Cohort Outcomes REgistry.

The one-year fellowship program is available to a postgraduate surgeon who has completed an orthopedic residency, but it may also be ideal for a surgeon who has just completed a fellowship who would like more exposure to pediatric sports medicine conditions and treatment. Currently, there is one position available for the 2023 cycle, and we are also accepting applications for the 2024 cycle. This fellowship is perfect for a PGY4 who is interested in sports medicine and may have been overlooked or gone unmatched. A PGY5 who is interested in a second fellowship is also an ideal candidate. 

Training Start: Clinical position to begin in August 2023
