    I eventually would like to go into sports medicine. It has always been my passion. I would like to know the differences between a sports medicine fellowship and a sport & spine fellowship?

    Thanks

    I think the difference between the two fellowships will really depend on where you do the fellowship and who runs the Sports Medicine fellowship. In general, I think that a Sports & Spine fellowship will probably teach you to do some basic Interventional Spine procedures (ESIs mainly) and possibly offer some additional electrodiagnostic training.
