Sports Medicine Fellowship


The UW Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation has been successfully training physicians for over 65 years. We embrace transition; while at the same time maintain a respect for our roots. As we adapt to changes in both medicine and academics, we are guided by the desire to accept new challenges and grow from them. This fundamental security is what will allow us to move swiftly and confidently into the future.
