Interested in Sports Medicine?

Grant can get you there!

One of the many reasons I chose Grant for my residency is the opportunities for Sports Medicine. Not only is there a fellowship available after residency, there is also fantastic sports medicine training throughout residency. Grant helped me get connected to shadow and work alongside sports medicine doctors and orthopedic surgeons in the area to enhance my learning and practical skills. I had the opportunity to participate in the medical coverage of numerous events in Columbus including the Columbus Marathon, the Arnold Classic, the Emerald City Half-Marathon, high school state soccer championships and wrestling tournaments. In my third year of residency, a co-resident and I were the team doctors for a local high school throughout the year, covering football, basketball, and wrestling as well as having weekly training room sessions, which was an incredible learning experience. All these things were made possible through the connections and training at the Grant Family Medicine Residency, and I am thoroughly grateful for all they did for me.
