Sports Medicine Fellowship

The University of Mississippi Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship was established in 2008. Our fellowship offers a unique and exciting post-doctoral educational opportunity for physicians trained in primary care specialties.

It is the only primary care fellowship in sports medicine offered in Mississippi and is one of approximately 120 such programs in the United States. Our program accepts one fellow each academic year and is 12 months in length beginning on July 1 of each year.
