Sports Medicine


The Department of Emergency Medicine’s Sports Medicine group has obtained a specialized level of knowledge regarding musculoskeletal injuries, health promotion, physical fitness, and nutrition. The goal is to help patients continue to pursue a healthy life through exercise and serve our patients by expediting their care beyond the Emergency Department. At University of Colorado Hospital, we work closely with sports medicine physicians in many other primary specialties, including family medicine, pediatrics, PM&R, and orthopedics. We hope to serve our patients by expediting their care beyond the Emergency Department. Academically, we work with emergency medicine (EM) residents to help augment their orthopedic and musculoskeletal education. Future goals include establishing an EM-based fellowship position, and the development of a residency track for those interested in sports medicine.
