For Clinicians

Leading-Edge Research and Training Sports Medicine Leaders of Tomorrow

Improving outcomes with advanced sports medicine techniques is achieved through our team’s ongoing research focus. The ultimate goal of our research program is to advance clinical care through research excellence, investigation, cooperation and education. Experts at UH Sports Medicine lead many innovative studies, including:

  • Cartilage regeneration through a grant awarded to Case Western Reserve University from the Department of Defense
  • Growing and rebuilding artificial rotator cuffs for new discoveries in bone and joint repair
  • Using the injury model data, including variables such as weather, our goal is to translate to athletes at a younger age how to optimize modifications for injury prevention. We take an uncontrolled environment such as temperature and make it a better performance environment based on risk management data.

Preparing Leaders in Sports Medicine

Education is a significant part of what sports medicine doctors engage in at University Hospitals. Medical students, residents and fellows shadow the doctors and surgeons as they prepare to become the next leaders in sports medicine. We offer a Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship, a dually accredited ACGME/AOA program offered through the division of General Academic Pediatrics and Sports Medicine. The goal of this program is to educate physicians in all aspects of caring for athletes, including medical care both on and off the field.
