Department and Faculty

PM&R Sports Medicine faculty member works with a patient at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

At the Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine, staff members treat sports- and activity-related injuries to facilitate a quick return to sports and activity. The clinic offers a coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to diagnose musculoskeletal conditions.


In addition to caring for patients in clinical practice, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You work closely with the sports medicine staff throughout your training in the PM&R Sports Medicine Fellowship.

Advisers and mentors

Faculty advisers are available to provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. You meet with your adviser periodically throughout the program to review your progress and career goals, and to ensure that your educational needs are being met. Your adviser may serve as a contact point for introducing you and your family to Rochester, Minnesota, and the Mayo Clinic system.

Visiting professors

Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds and have informal discussions with trainees. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these educational opportunities.
