The Chief Fellow will work closely with the fellowship program directors and program coordinator to oversee the educational curriculum for the 3 first-year fellows, and also lead Emory Sports Medicine educational programming for 27 faculty, 5 fellows, athletic training residents and many learners. This includes organizing monthly grand rounds sessions, and assisting with the logistics for monthly journal clubs, fellowship didactic sessions, the ultrasound curriculum, and the Annual Emory Sports Medicine CME/CEU meeting. The weekly responsibilities of the Chief Fellow include protected research and administrative time, independent sports medicine clinics, and supervised clinical experiences learning from the program directors and faculty across Emory Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics in accordance with their professional goals and areas of specific interest.

The Chief Fellow will develop skills and conduct original Sports Medicine Research in an area of their interest. Emory Orthopaedics offers robust research support and mentorship in the areas of orthobiologics, concussion, youth sports, injury prevention, and many other areas across our diverse faculty. Previous Chief Fellows have been involved with research teams with grant funding from the NIH, AMSSM, and multiple other sources. The Emory Sports Performance and Research Center (SPARC) is home to world-class researchers and innovative technology to assess both biomechanical and brain-body relationships predisposing athletes to injury. The Chief Fellow will be funded to attend two conferences per year, with the opportunity to attend additional meetings to pursue leadership roles and present original research.

Further, the Chief Fellow will have the opportunity to advance their skillset in both diagnostic ultrasound, and advanced ultra-sound guided interventions (including exposure to US guided carpal tunnel and trigger finger releases), extra-corporeal shockwave therapy, and orthobiologic treatments such as PRP, BMAC, and MFAT procedures.
