The Jackson Clinics Upper Extremity Athlete Fellowship
    The program curriculum we have designed is intended to meet and exceed the criteria laid out in the DSSP for the Upper Extremity Athlete Fellowship. We have chosen to significantly bolster the physician mentorship and collaboration component, as we feel it is critical to understand the decision making, progression criteria, and risk management that our referral sources expect when they trust us with their complex patients.

    Our fellows will have extensive didactic training using multiple learning models and information resources. Additionally, we will provide opportunities for them to attend both medical and physical therapy specialty conferences on the shoulder and elbow at no cost to them. We feel strongly that our fellows will learn best by integrating the information they learn into clinical practice. Simply stated, the more shoulder and elbow patients they see, the better they will get.

    Our fellows will be teachers and mentors both during and after the program. Our residency program offers multiple avenues for high level mentorship, lecture, and practical skill building teaching opportunities, and we will expect our fellows to participate in all three. Again, we feel that learning happens while teaching and we want our fellows to spread their knowledge to others in TJC.
