Additional limited fellowships are available but not very common: sports medicine, adolescent medicine, preventive medicine.

Are u sure preventative medicine is a fellowship of internal medicine? I thought it was a specialty of its own.

Here's the list from the American Board of Internal Medicine (www.abim.org):
allergy & immunology (with further sub-spec available in clinical lab & immuno)
cardiology (with further sub-spec available in clinical cardiac electrophysiology or interventional cardiology)
endocrinology, diabetes, & metabolism
They also have certificates of added qualifications in:
critical care medicine

Simply not true Apollyon. UTMB's aerospace medicine program is the only non-military affiliated aerospace medicine residency. It is closely affiliated with NASA which is located about 30 minutes up the road from Galveston. In fact, several faculty at UTMB are former astronauts.
The preventive medicine program at UTMB is not aimed towards corrections medicine at all. You are correct in associating UTMB with corrections medicine as UTMB provides medical care for 80% of the prisoners in the state of Texas. By the way, most "prison docs" in Texas (ie. the ones at the units) are not board certified and barely meet criteria for licensing in the state of Texas, let alone complete a fellowship in "corrections medicine".
