Houston Methodist Hospital Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship Program
The Primary Care Sports Medicine (PCSM) Fellowship Program at Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine within the Houston Methodist Hospital received accreditation in 2011 by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), following a peer review process and thorough evaluation of established standards and guidelines.
There are just a little over 100 accredited programs around the country, and the Houston Methodist PCSM Fellowship program is only one of two in the greater Houston area.
The Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital program, along with its sister program at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital, are unique in that both are attached academically to the same family medicine residency program - also run by Houston Methodist Hospital.
Together, they represent the largest Primary Care Sports Medicine training program in Texas
The program provides fellows with a broader understanding of the unique needs of the athletic population - setting a precedence in sports medicine training.
Under the direction of Scott Rand, M.D., FAAFP CAQSM, fellows receive multidisciplinary training on the advanced diagnosis and treatment of a broad spectrum of sports medicine-related injuries and illnesses affecting all ages and skill levels - from recreational athletes and weekend warriors to Olympic and professional athletes.
