Mississippi Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center and the Fellowship Committee are committed to provide the necessary educational, financial, and human resources to support the fellowship program. The commitment was made in 1993 to initiate and support a Sports Medicine Fellowship Program based at our clinic location in Jackson, MS.
Increased financial backing of the Program is evident through yearly fellow salary increases to stay competitive with other fellowships, increased meeting and attendance participation by our fellows, supporting visiting professors and traveling fellowships, and increased wet lab availability. In 2008, our Fellowship Program expanded to include the Tulane Institute of Orthopaedics in New Orleans, LA. With this addition, two five-week rotations were added for each fellow at Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine. Further financial commitment is also evident in the increased human resources and electronic equipment available to provide support for the fellows in wet lab use, research administration, contract negotiations, etc.
Our teaching staff has parlayed this commitment into an increase in the Physician staff and encourages the fellows to include clinic/surgery time with those physicians not on the fellowship teaching staff, allowing for an exposure of knowledge in the areas of hand, ankle/foot, and total joint diagnosis and surgery. Additional educational opportunities are supported through attendance at local, regional, and national meetings, and hosting visiting professors and traveling fellowships.
Our continued commitment to the Fellowship Program is also evident in the total-clinic support we provide. Our DIO, the Mississippi Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center CEO, Glen Silverman, meet regularly with current fellows to offer assistance with personal and professional issues. Our nurses, x-ray techs, and cast techs work closely with fellows on a daily basis. Our clinic staff is available for office support through transcription and secretarial duties.
We continue to support our Fellowship Program by providing a Fellowship Reception at the AANA Fall Meeting each year for current and former fellows, and our physicians to meet in an informal setting, thus allowing for the interchange of ideas and furthering a sense of comradeship.
Our commitment to the Mississippi Sports Medicine Fellowship remains strong. We believe in the continued education available to young orthopaedists through our Fellowship Program.
