Department of Sports Medicine
Innovation of education, service, and discovery in sports medicine.
We believe in the integration of academic knowledge into clinical practice and discovery through excellence in patient care. Practitioners in our department also teach academic courses. The learners benefit from the faculty members because of their years of practical knowledge and experience. Our department's clinical excellence is a result of practicing faculty members and pioneering organizational structure that was decades ahead of others in the profession.
