For selected applicants, interviews occur during October and November.
What do you look for in an applicant?
We feel fortunate to receive many strong applications each year, but we are limited to interviewing 15 to 18 candidates, thus the strength of the application and outstanding performance in residency is very important. Specifically we look for an applicant's long-term interest in sports medicine. This will include rotations scheduled or completed, conferences attended, time spent as a team physician and/or at mass participation events.
What previous training do you need to apply to the program?
We consider candidates who have recent, successful completion of a Family Medicine or Meds/Peds residency program. We consider candidates from Emergency, Internal Medicine and PM&R residencies if they had a strong ambulatory and sports medicine experience during training. Because of the amount of adult medicine in the Sports Medicine and Urgent Care Clinics, we consider only those graduates of Pediatric programs who have additional experience in adult medicine.
