Sports Medicine Fellowship

​Welcome to the RUHS/UCR Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship

Letter from the Program Director

Dear Applicant, 

Thank you for considering our fellowship at the Riverside University Health System and University of California Riverside. We started our program in 2018 with our inaugural fellow and I am excited for the upcoming years as we continue to grow with our affiliations and our our community.

We offer a robust Division 1 athletic coverage experience at Cal Baptis University and the University of California Riverside, where we provide comprehensive medical care for athletes both in training room and on the sideline.​ At the professional level, we also work with the Inland Empire 66'ers, a minor league affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels. Already we've picked up new partnerships, including opportunities to sideline and cover games for USA Water Polo. We also continue to serve our community by offering sideline coverage and training room coverage for Riverside City College and several local high schools.

Because musculoskeletal issues comprise one-third of all primary care visits, we believe in training physicians who'll care for the whole patient and who'll continue to serve the community.

​As a fellow at RUHS/UCR, you'll be afforded the opportunity to care for the medically underserved at our Sports Clinic at the Perris Community Health Clinic, an FQHC. You'll partner with Riverside Medical Clinic to work free Saturday clinics available to high school students during football season. You'll have opportunities to work with our dedicated orthopedic surgeons both in clinic and in the operating room to care for the most medically indigent at the county hospital. In addition, you will work side-by-side with private-practice physicians who run successful sports medicine practices.

As part of your education, we'll also provide training in diagnostic ultrasound and outpatient procedures, such as ultrasound-guided and landmark-guided injections.

I'm so proud of the program that we've developed and its opportunities to help athletes and people of all skill level return to meaningful activity. We look forward to your application.
