Overview

In 2020, Burke established a Sports Medicine Fellowship. There are 2 fellows per year in the one-year program. The overall goal of the program is training the next generation of Sports Medicine physicians with compassion, competency and leadership in our healthcare system. Burke’s main campus features 61 acres of meticulously manicured grounds with rolling hills and award-winning foliage, as well as an outdoor track for sports and adaptive sports.

Vision

The Burke Rehabilitation Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship Program commits to becoming a top tier program in Sports Medicine. The program aims to produce leaders in the field by aligning the program and fellows’ goals and interests and by offering the highest quality education.

Education, Research and Evaluation 

The didactic program is a 12-month block program, reflecting the guidelines of the ACGME and American Board of Medical Specialties. Monthly grand-rounds invite renowned rehabilitation specialists to expand and exchange innovative ideas and knowledge with faculty, fellows, and PM&R residents. All fellows are required to complete a research project and quality improvement project. The fellows’ evaluation process occurs in a supportive environment with multiple sources of data (such as end of block examinations, OSCEs, standardized computerized testing, QI activities, faculty evaluations and 360 degree evaluations).

Clinical Rotations and Sites

  • Outpatient sports and musculoskeletal care at Burke's main campus
  • Outpatient and operative orthopedic care at a nearby orthopedics practice
  • Emergency Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center, located in the Bronx, N.Y., a busy inner city emergency department. 

Housing and Living in New York area

Fellows enjoy the opportunity for subsidized on-campus housing. Fellows can also commute from New York City (from any of the 5 boroughs. New York City is only a short train ride from White Plains). 

Wellness and Participation in Community

Burke leadership places the wellness of residents and fellows as one of its highest priorities. Residents and fellows have a large two-room lounge equipped with comfortable furniture, a 55” HDTV, video gaming, computers, and massage chairs. Fellows also have access to a private lactation room. Like all Burke employees, fellows also have access to employee health services, inclusive of mental health and wellness counseling.
