Clinical exposure to amateur and professional athletes and coverage of teams at the professional level are included.  Participation in rounds and some teaching responsibilities are also part of the program.

The fellow will be in the OR two to three days a week as well as in clinics.  Teaching rounds are held on Thursdays.

The fellowship is set in the state-of-the-art Pan Am Clinic with MRI, five operating rooms, Primary Care, Orthopaedics, Plastics and Research facilities.  It is one of the finest Sports Medicine facilities in Canada.  The Arthroscopic Skills Training Centre has recently been established at the Pan Am Clinic with virtual arthroscopic trainers, musculoskeletal models and access to cadaveric specimens.
