Research

Scholarly and academic development is supported and encouraged!

Fellows are expected to participate in scholarly and academic development activities during their fellowship. They will learn about research basics, utilizing evidence based medicine for daily practice, faculty development and quality improvement methods including lean methodology. Both fellows will work together with faculty to plan and implement a QI project and longitudinal research project with Dr. Knapp. Her research centers on equity in sports medicine, disordered eating, childhood obesity, and body image in sports. Dr. Knapp has received grant money for her research including the AMSSM Young Investigator Award. Dedicated time for projects is carved out during the academic year and support will be provided during that time by Dr. Knapp and our growing research department. Projects are meant to be collaborative and fellows will have the opportunity to work with other fellowships in the region. We hope to support you in your academic development as well as with teaching and writing opportunities as our faculty are experienced authors and presenters. They have written chapters in Netter’s Sports Medicine and Delee and Drez Sports Medicine textbooks and presented locally to the national level at AMSSM. We are here to support your academic and scholarly development to prepare you for presentations at AMSSM and beyond fellowship.
