Dignity Health Sports Medicine Fellowship at Northridge Hospital is a one year fellowship program located in the San Fernando Valley just north of downtown Los Angeles in Southern California.
Our educational mission is to train a well-rounded primary care sports medicine physician who:
- Has the ability and confidence to provide evidence-based care for a variety of populations and conditions
- Is comfortable working in varied clinical settings, serving as a team physician, and working with a multi-disciplinary sports medicine team
- Develops leadership, research, and critical analysis skills to serve effectively as a Sports Medicine specialist
- Maintains and improves their skills in primary care
- Serves as an educational resource for medical students and residents
This is accomplished in a variety of clinical settings, event coverage, and didactics. To achieve these educational goals, we have arranged a longitudinal curriculum focusing on providing experiences in different clinical settings. In addition, the schedule includes time for electives and research for the fellow to help tailor their education towards their anticipated future practices.
