Fellow Rotations & Educational Programs
Gold Team Service
Cristin M. Ferguson, MD / Allston J. Stubbs, MD
Aug/Sep/Oct and Feb/Mar/Apr
The orthopaedic sports medicine fellows spend time assigned primarily to each team of the sports medicine service in three month blocks. This includes both operating room and outpatient clinic experience according to the faculty's schedule, but will generally consist of two days in the clinic and two days in the operating room each week. Operating room coverage allows the fellows to function as primary surgeon, teaching assistant, or first assistant according to the particular case and fellow/resident availability.
Black Team Service
David F. Martin, MD / Gary G. Poehling, MD
Oct/Nov/Dec and May/Jun/Jul
As described above, the fellows spend three months with each team on a rotating basis, but do have access to cross cover in the event of unique educational opportunities.
Sports Medicine Team Coverage – All Faculty – All Year
The fellows function in team physician activities at the Winston-Salem State University athletic program and the Wake Forest University athletic program. This is under the direct supervision of Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Martin. In addition, the fellows assist in high school sports coverage and special events coverage. These activities allow good experiences with excellent supervision, but the opportunity to develop independence is also stressed.
Sports Medicine Research – Beth Smith, PhD/Cristin Ferguson, MD – All Year
The fellows spend one day per week in protected research time. This day will vary depending on the clinical service assignment and depending on research program opportunities. The fellows are required to produce at least one publishable paper, but opportunities and support exist for much greater experience and production.
