About the Program

Prisma Health and the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville fellowship in Primary Care Sports Medicine is a one-year ACGME accredited program with an optional second year sponsored by the Department of Family Medicine.

The fellowship is designed to provide comprehensive sports medicine training in musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal disease in athletes and active individuals. We provide coverage for professional, collegiate and high school athletes, as well as, the typical “weekend warrior.”

Focus On Athlete Care

  • Prevention
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment
  • Rehabilitation

Our program is part of an academic health center and as such our physicians are held to a higher standard. They provide patient care and contribute to education, scholarly activity and service.

Our program has one of the largest core groups of primary care sports medicine faculty in the country including seven physicians trained in Family Medicine, two in Emergency Medicine, one in Internal Medicine/Pediatrics, and one in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. This diverse group fosters an environment of critical thinking with an integrative relationship amongst orthopaedic surgery, physical therapy and sports performance.

Beyond our faculty, we bolster state-of-the-art facilities, one of the largest athletic training programs in the country, significant variety and volume of clinical patients and memorable experiences that will last a lifetime.
