Fellowship In Sports Medicine & Sports Rehabilitation

Curriculum

The Fellowship in Sports Medicine and Sports Rehabilitation would be the first one in the country for the MBBS graduates.

Preamble

The Success of the Indian athletes and teams, in International Competitions would become a satisfying and satiating reality only when the medical community desires to assist. The pride of every Indian is at stake when Indian teams compete. The International competitions and their humiliating results are a reflection of the health of the nation at the highest end of the ‘Spectrum of Health’. Only the evolution of Sports Medicine can transform India as a powerful nation to restore the pride, and rewrite and redefine the History of World Sports.

Sports Medicine deals with people who make it happen in Sports. Fitness Medicine deals with people who watch it happen. When the experts who pass this fellowship and serve the community many may wonder what happened.

The Main objective of this Fellowship is to effectively generate ample knowledge, and provide optimal clinical experience for an MBBS graduate in a multifaceted specialty as Sports Medicine. It is essential that the Sports Physician work with the Sports Medicine Team with the specialization as Sports Physiotherapy, Exercise Physiology, Sports Biomechanics, Sports Nutrition, Sports Psychology, Sports Podiatry, and Sports Pharmacology. In the absence of any of the above specialist it would be the onus of the Sports Physician to fill in their role. The word ‘Sports’ would include Competitive and Recreational Sports, Dance, Martial Arts and Sports for the Differentially Abled. The Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of the Sports Injuries and the Rehabilitation of the athletes to return at the earliest to competition without causing a re-injury and with a performance surpassing the one prior to injury are the constant alluring confrontations for the Sports Physician. This, persistent and perpetual demand, on the Sports Physician makes the specialty of Sports Medicine and Sports Rehabilitation challenging and absolutely fascinating.
