Education is provided by the family medicine sports medicine fac-ulty, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons, sports physical therapists, and staff from SIU-C with expertise in nutrition, strength training, and sports psychology. Experiences focus on the evaluation, treatment, rehabilita-tion, and prevention of activity-related injuries as well as non-musculoskeletal conditions which decrease the effectiveness of the exercising individual. Fellows gain experience at the university, community college, and high school levels, and a multitude of sideline experiences in many different sports and recreational events, functioning as team physicians, covering mass events, and managing medical and orthopedic conditions aris-ing from activity.
