Kettering Health Network's Soin Family Medicine sponsors the primary care sports medicine fellowship. It is a one-year fellowship fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and currently accepts two fellows per year. It is designed for graduates of family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, emergency medicine or physical medicine and rehabilitation residencies.
The sports medicine team provides care for patients of all ages from early childhood to the elderly. The fellowship provides an opportunity to care for middle school, high school, undergraduate, and professional athletes. Event coverage includes football, soccer, track, baseball, basketball, and wrestling. Our fellowship prides itself on allowing the fellow to pursue personal interests. While preparing for the Primary Care Sports Medicine Certificate of Added Qualification Exam and meeting the basic requirements of Primary Care Sports Medicine practice, we encourage and assist our fellows to take advantage of many of the optional educational opportunities that the fellowship offers. Previous fellows have used elective time and additional rotations to improve on skills they feel are important for their personal interests and practice.
Our facility has onsite imaging and a state-of-the-art ultrasound machine. We have developed a point-of-care ultrasound curriculum for diagnosis and ultrasound-guided injections. Our facility also houses physical therapy, an exercise physiology lab, and a sports performance enhancement program which many fellows use to expand on their knowledge of rehabilitation protocols and implementation of exercise stress testing. Fellows are encouraged to observe the physical therapy protocols as they are implemented to be well acquainted with the home exercise and physical therapy modalities they will be prescribing in their own practices.
