Womens Sports Medicine at TRIA
TRIA Education Team
Catalog Description: This four-week advanced selective offers exposure to multi-disciplinary care of the active and athletic female. Students will work with orthopaedic surgery sports medicine and primary care sports medicine physicians, a sports dietitian, physical therapists and athletic trainers. Students may have the option to work with a physician for sporting event coverage to learn the intricacies of on-field medical care for athletes. There is some flexibility in the exact layout of this course, in particular allowing students to choose whether they wish to spend time in the operating room with a sports medicine orthopedic surgeon, or more time spent in clinic with sports medicine providers. The medical student is not expected to take any call during the rotation. If a sideline coverage opportunity arises, these tend to occur in the evening or on a weekend. Otherwise, there are no overnight or weekend coverage expectations during this rotation. Most weeks will include 4.5 to 5 days of clinical exposure at TRIA Woodbury.
