After completing their Medical School education, a physician completes Residency training, which is 5 years of training in an Academic Institution. If additional training is desired for a specialty, after completing the Residency training, the physician can apply to continue his/her education by completing a 1-year Fellowship Program.
After the Fellowship is completed, the surgeon is considered a Specialist.
Our Fellowship Programs compete for the best and brightest Residency trained physicians each year, in order to bring together the best team possible to treat our patients and maintain the highest level of medical practice we can offer within the practice of orthopaedic surgery.
Physicians come to the Mississippi Sports Medicine Fellowship Programs from all over the United States and Canada to receive training from the best physicians in the United States - our Mississippi Sports Medicine physicians.
Additionally, our physicians participate in UMMC Orthopaedic resident rotations attributing to the knowledge and effectiveness of physicians as they complete their residency programs and move into practice serving future patients.
