The advanced training year is divided into five rotations each of which lasts 5 weeks and is repeated giving each physician a total of 10 weeks for each rotation. This format also allows for physicians to learn and develop their clinical and surgical skills in order to derive more from each instructor when they return to the rotation. The different rotations allow for not only different areas of focus but also a wide variety of pathology as well as treatment options and techniques.
Both Surgeon Advanced Training Programs are offered a team of researchers, including a Director of Research and 2 Research Coordinators that are well versed in our procedures, techniques, and areas of study. This team is here to assist our physicians through the research process by assisting with the finding of journal articles, article formatting, and submission.
Through the Research Department, our physicians have access to CareSense, SOS, and all of our Faculty Physicians’ case logs by CPT code, as well as our on-site Orthopaedic Surgical Library.

On behalf of the Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy Surgeon Advanced Training Program at Mississippi Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center (MSMOC), I want to personally welcome you to our program website. Our sports medicine advanced training is an ACGME accredited 12-month program offering 5 approved physician positions. All of our sports faculty are committed to the highest quality care for our patients and to educating and training our sports medicine physicians. The MSMOC sports advanced training program exposes the 5 physicians to all areas of sports medicine surgical practice including shoulder, elbow, knee, and ankle arthroscopic procedures as well as to an extensive experience in hip arthroscopy. In addition, numerous opportunities to participate in a wide variety of open procedures such as reverse shoulder arthroplasty, elbow ligament reconstruction, and complex shoulder instability stabilization are available.
Our private practice partnership setting creates unique efficiencies for our sports physicians to learn and develop while also fostering opportunities that maximize their clinical and surgical training experiences. As a consequence, each sports medicine physician can expect to directly participate in over 1000 surgical cases during their training year. Physicians take part in a wide variety of patient care interactions including clinical office assessments, on-field athletic evaluations, and extensive operative experiences.
All surgeons rotate through 10-week rotations with each instructor (including a 10-week formal rotation with Drs. Felix (Buddy) Savoie and Michael O’Brien at Tulane University in New Orleans). Each of our sports medicine faculty is a surgical sub-specialist that has tremendous experience in both open and arthroscopic procedures, and all have written and presented extensively both nationally and internationally within their respective areas of expertise. We sincerely appreciate your interest in our sports medicine surgeon advanced training program.
