Sports Neurology

There are fewer than 10 sports neurology fellowship programs in the country. The UConn Health Sports Neurology Fellowship Program is the only one in the Northeast.

Our mission is to train sports neurologists using a comprehensive curriculum and expand the field globally to meet well-established community needs.

The main objective of the UConn Health Sports Neurology Fellowship is to help fellows develop expertise in the recognition, diagnosis, treatment, management and rehabilitation of outpatient sports neurology conditions, and gain experience with live coverage of sports events.

The UConn Health Sports Neurology Fellowship accepts one fellow for a 12-month program beginning July 1.

Unique Components Include:

  • Varied lecture series such as weekly neurology grand rounds, monthly joint conference with other sports neurology programs, weekly didactics with journal club, and a bi-weekly headache lecture series in partnership with the Hartford HealthCare Ayer Neuroscience Institute Headache Center.
  • Unmatched clinical experience through live coverage on sidelines, ringside, in arenas and other settings, as well as through rotations in neurotology, physical therapy, headache, pain management, neurosurgery, primary care sports medicine and orthopedic sports medicine.
  • Clinical experience with diverse central and peripheral neurologic conditions in an active population. This ranges from youth athletes to elderly and from performers and athletes to weekend warriors and business executives.
  • Research opportunities and mentorship from our faculty.
  • Protected time and resources for professional growth including attendance at national and regional conferences to present research.
  • Participation in our monthly Sports Health Council where members meet and collaborate on patient care and updates in research across all disciplines of sports medicine within Hartford HealthCare.
