Sports Neurology Fellowship

Michigan NeuroSport holds the honor of establishing the first fellowship program in Sports Neurology in the country.

The University of Michigan Sports Neurology Fellowship is to assisting trainees in developing expertise in the diagnosis and management of neurologic sports injuries. Michigan NeuroSport fellowship provides the opportunity to treat patients of all ages and skill levels including on-field physician experience. The goal of the fellowship is to provide an environment for acquiring the knowledge, skills, and clinical judgment essential to the practice of sports neurology. In addition to training in sports neurology, the fellowship will provide exposure to the areas of neurophysiology, neuropsychology, pain management, vestibular therapy, and sports medicine. 

This program is not an ACGME accredited fellowship.Our dynamic program provides fellows with the ability to evaluate players from all levels of sport in an outpatient clinic setting, experience the role of team physician by participating in collegiate sideline assessments and gain exposure to the latest advancements in research surrounding the diagnosis and management of sports related concussion.  This activity is vitally important to the continued development of the field of sports neurology, and other institutions around the country are looking to our training program as a model as they begin to implement similar fellowship programs.
