Sports Medicine

Many of our residents have completed a Sports Medicine Fellowship. Let’s hear from one of our recent graduates, Berkin Ulgen, who went on to do a Sport’s Medicine fellowship at the University of South Carolina.

Sports medicine has become a popular and widely accepted sub-discipline within family practice. Additionally, twenty-five percent of visits to primary care physicians are for musculoskeletal problems. Recognizing the need for family physicians to be proficient in caring for physically active people and athletes, our program offers residents the opportunity to develop expanded knowledge and skills in sports medicine. All residents at the All Saints Family Medicine Residency Program will be exposed to sports medicine training and any additional experiences of interest. Residents who choose the sports medicine focus will receive a structured, advanced sports medicine training program in their last two years of residency.
