Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship
Program Director: Nancy White, M.D.
Fellowship Coordinator: Darlene Leszczynski
The one-year Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship is an opportunity to train with some of the industry's leading experts in athletic medicine. Two fellows are accepted each year.
Henry Ford has long been synonymous with excellence in athletic medicine. The fellows have exposure to providing the medical and orthopedic care of professional athletes, like the Detroit Lions, as well as collegiate, high school and amateur athletes. Henry Ford also has one of the few dedicated sports concussion programs in the Midwest.
From day one, the challenging curriculum provides a solid foundation for Primary Care Sports Medicine. The fellows are immersed in a broad range of issues - exercise physiology, anatomy, musculoskeletal imaging, orthopedic surgery, sports psychology, integrative medicine and nutrition.
The fellowship is anchored by its strong support from a large faculty of fellowship-trained sports physicians and surgeons. The fellowship is designed to be a fun, interesting and informative year to broaden the fellow's experience in the field of Primary Care Sports Medicine.
