With a curriculum designed for multidisciplinary collaboration, the fellow will have the unique opportunity to become a leader in inter-professional communication.  Fellows will be immersed within the University of Houston Division 1 Athletics Program that allows for onsite mentorship from athletic trainers, team physicians, strength and conditioning coaches, dietitians and sports physical therapists. Fellows will also work alongside Orthopedic Surgery Fellows, Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellows and Masters of Athletic Training students as they go through sections of their didactic curriculum. Additionally, the fellows work through their sports-specific rehab curriculum as they progress through the program with lectures and labs from specialists within the field.  While treating in the clinic, fellows will work closely with Memorial Hermann’s IRONMAN Human Performance team including strength and conditioning coaches, dietitians and biomechanists to successfully return their athletes to peak performance.  Lastly, fellows will have the opportunity to work alongside our research team to develop and execute a clinically meaningful research project for submission to national conferences and future publication.

Our goal is to provide a robust experience into the world of Division 1 athletics while giving the fellows the tools to reach their full potential through structured mentorship, diverse curriculum and leadership training.
