If you have an injury or condition that's getting in the way of your chosen sport or recreation — tennis, running, gardening, golf or anything else — make our team your first call and get back to living your best life.
Sports medicine physicians have special training in the physiology and injuries of athletics, while our orthopaedic surgeons have completed fellowships to earn a certificate of added qualification (CAQ) in sports medicine, providing both operative and non-operative treatment.
Athletic trainers work at the center of sports medicine, embedded with high school, college and professional teams for everyday care, treating injuries at games and events and coordinating care with physicians. They hold degrees in athletic training, kinesiology or related fields and have specialized AT education to earn board certification.
Fellows are physicians who have finished medical school plus a residency and are now undertaking specialized training. The University of Arizona's Sports Medicine Fellowship is run by the Department of Family & Community Medicine, and its physicians work with athletes of all ages: Pac-12 teams, students in the UArizona dance program, professionals and everyday people at public athletic events.
