Dear Prospective Fellow,
The Fellowship offers a unique Los Angeles based experience in Primary Care Sports Medicine which combines three settings: county experience at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, private practice experience at the West Coast Sports Medicine Foundation and a HMO experience at Kaiser Permanente. Surgical experience includes: sports medicine, arthroscopy, articular cartilage repair, shoulder and knee ligament reconstruction, meniscus repair, meniscus allograft implantation, autograft/allograft OATS, and tibial/femoral osteotomy.Fellows participate directly in the care of recreational, high school, college and professional Athletes. Research and Teaching opportunities are also offered. The WCSMF runs a high school outreach clinic on Saturday mornings (Fall ONLY) where we see local high school athletic injuries. This clinic is offered to all of the Team to Win high schools. More information about the Team to Win program can be found on our web site at www.wcsportsmed.com.The Team to Win outreach program is a community outreach program for high school athletes who cannot afford sports medicine care. The WCSMF puts certified athletic trainers at 22 high schools each year, and sideline physicians at football games on Friday nights. Fellows are responsible for covering Friday night football, in addition to working Saturday injury clinics along side other physicians and surgeons. In addition, fellows are the primary team physicians of several junior colleges in the area. This responsibility requires Saturday football games (approximately 5 total games per season). The WCSMF, in partnership with Harbor City Kaiser and Harbor UCLA runs a primary care sports medicine fellowship, and takes two (2) primary care fellows each year to assist with the Team to Win program.The WCSMF Team to Win program is a fast paced program, and FALL (football season) is the busiest.The applicant must be Board-certified/eligible and obtain a California medical license. This is a 1 Year Fellowship and begins on July 15.
