OSU Wexner Medical Center Sports Medicine, in conjunction with the Cleveland Indians, is pleased to sponsor a clinical physical therapy fellowship focused on the upper extremity athlete. The fellowship program was the first of its subspecialty to be credentialed through the American Physical Therapy Association.

The OSUWMC Upper Extremity Fellowship begins in the fall and concludes at the end of the Columbus Clippers AAA baseball season. The fellowship includes clinical care at OSUWMC sports medicine, regularly scheduled mentoring of residents participating in the OSUWMC Sports PT Residency program. The fellowship program provides the fellow the opportunity to work with the Cleveland Indians professional baseball organization throughout spring training and during an entire minor-league season.

Other educational opportunities include weekly resident/fellow conferences with sports medicine physicians, self-directed Spanish course, quarterly grand rounds, orthopaedic and family physician office shadowing, and a biomechanics research lab experience. The fellow will travel to either the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers or American Sports Medicine Institute baseball-specific continuing education program.
