    Does anyone know where a DO has to go for a residency toward a specialty in Sports Medicine? Does it matter which DO school you have attended?

    Most Sports Medicine doctors I know are physiatrists.

    Presently there is no "specialty" in sports med. There is a "certificate of added qualifications" that is granted after a physician finishes a one year fellowship, or if a physician works in the field (as a team doc, etc, for a certain amount of time). There are three tracts to get to sports med--Family medicine, Peds, or ortho surg. all of them emphasize different things--general health, development, structure, etc. Most sports med clinics have a variety of docs working in them--the Center for Sports Medicine in Phoenix has family practice docs, orthopeds, and OMT specialists, as well as other consultants. CSM are the team docs for the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Phoenix Coyotes, as well as overseeing several local high school athlitics teams. You probably want to go look in the opportunities book to find out where different fellowship programs are.
