“The Fellowship program had excellent attendings, in both primary care sports medicine and orthopedic sports medicine who each had their own unique practice and teaching style. The program granted me the rare opportunity, especially as a fellow, to be the first line of contact for the teams we covered. I also had benefited greatly by having access to some of the leaders in sports medicine research.”

“There are so many things I loved about Wisconsin that it’s hard to condense it into a concise and eloquent statement. All the professionals who I was fortunate enough to work with were wonderful teachers and were practicing at the height of their fields – not just the Primary Care Sports Medicine faculty, but also all of the orthopedic surgeons, athletic trainers, physical therapists, psychologists, exercise physiologists, etc.
I have yet to meet someone whose fellowship fully immersed them into the care of athletic teams as the UW fellowship does – the athletic trainers, coaches, and athletes all treated me as an integral part of the care team.
I still benefit from the writing and research experience provided by the UW faculty and from having to teach and lecture as much as I did while I was a fellow (both of which helped me learn and develop my skills of presenting to learners and at conferences). There was also a lot to learn from the experience of doctors who had been team doctors at UW for decades, particularly how to navigate diplomatic relationships within an institution in order to provide the best care for the athletes.”
Erin Hammer, MD
2015-2016 PCSM Fellow
Dr. Hammer completed her fellowship in 2016. She is current a Sports Medicine & Team Physician for the Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation.
“My fellowship year at the University of Wisconsin was easily the most gratifying year of my training. The faculty are committed to providing an individualized experience for fellows based on research interests and personal learning goals.
UW-Madison offers a uniquely rich opportunity for fellows to participate in research. Faculty members welcome fellow involvement on variety of projects, or fellows may pursue independent programs of research. The fellowship offers dedicated time during the week to actually pursue research projects, which made completing meaningful work possible.
I think what set my fellowship experience apart was the genuine responsibility I was given for caring for student-athletes, even those in more visible sports. They were “my” athletes and I was made to feel like I was an integral part of the sports medicine team. The fellowship year is full and demanding, but the quality of the teaching, research experience, and clinical independence are exceptional.”
