Fellow Rotations & Educational Programs
Gold Team Service
Cristin M. Ferguson, MD / Allston J. Stubbs, MD / Kevin E. Coates, 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 / Brian R. Waterman, MD / John Hubbard, MD
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 Wake Forest University athletic program, Winston-Salem State University athletic program, and Winston-Salem Dash (Chicago White Sox minor affiliate). This is under the direct supervision of Dr. Ferguson, Dr. Hubbard, Dr. Waterman, and Dr. Coates. In addition, the fellows assist in high school sports coverage for the Forsyth County School District and special events coverage, such as the Winston-Salem Open and Winston-Salem Cycling Classic. These activities allow good experiences with excellent supervision, but the opportunity to develop independence is also stressed.
Sports Medicine Research – All Year
The fellows are allotted one half-day per week in protected research time and attend a monthly research meeting with faculty and research coordinators. This day will vary depending on the clinical service assignment, research program opportunities, and effective time utilization. The fellows are required to produce at least two publishable manuscripts. However, numerous additional opportunities and resources are available to support further interdisciplinary collaboration and research that focuses on clinical outcomes, athletic performance, basic science and translational medicine, athletic performance, and biologics.
