The Highest Value-Based Residency and Fellowship Education in Sports Medicine

Residency

              • Competency based training and bioskills


1. Rotations:

Residents are assigned to a junior and senior three month rotation, their primary attachment is UTOSM sports with base hospital fly in call.

The program has been developed to teach the defined body of knowledge in three month rotations at a junior and then senior level.

Reference materials are kept in a shared “Dropbox” folder. “Current concepts” are used as a basis for advanced teaching.

The residents know the requirements in advance. They are assessed at the end of the rotation with STACERS, MCQ, Sports specific OSCE, OSATS and a case presentation.

Teaching rounds 4 days per week:

  • Tuesday – Research Rounds, Cross City Sports Rounds, Primary Care Rounds
  • Wednesday – Physical Exam, Procedures
  • Thursday – OKU defined body of knowledge
  • Friday – Bioskills

We have a bioskills program in the Simlab at WCH as part of the curriculum. A multi- disciplinary dry lab has been set up at WCH with four stations for orthopedic sports procedures. This is incorporated into the resident teaching rounds. Our hip simulation laboratory is new and functional.

3. Cross City Rounds:

These rounds are combined with Primary Care on the first and third Tuesdays of the month.

4. Interdisciplinary Exposure:

Sports residents receive exposure to the interdisciplinary nature of sports medicine as an integral part of their rotation:

  • Primary care sports clinic
  • Sports radiology clinic and lecture
  • Physiotherapy rotation
  • Attendance at sports events e.g. ballet class, U of T teams.

  • This is the UTOSM part of the Division wide teaching on alternate Friday mornings
  • 5 sessions are given on Sports
  • The residents are pre-polled to determine which topics they feel are most useful
  • All OP Day sessions are assessed by surveymonkey

6. Bioskills City Wide:

    • A new sports program was set up for the cadaver teaching lab. Upper and lower extremity will be done over two days each on alternate years.
    • Upper extremity will be elbow and shoulder arthroscopy and soft tissue reconstruction.
    • Lower extremity will be ankle and knee arthroscopy and soft tissue reconstruction
    • A one day research project will be added using the cadavers from session. For example: accuracy of anchor placement in glenoid

Fellowship

  • Research orientation and teaching roles
  • Develop outcome measures for the assessment of competence, including validated simulation models
