Sports Medicine Interest Group - DGSOM

The multidimensional aspect of sports medicine is often overlooked. Although the field universally deals with physical injuries related to sports and exercise, many disciplines contribute to this facet of patient care, including Orthopaedic surgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, neurology, and primary care. Specifically, the Sports Medicine Interest Group at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA aims to integrate the multidisciplinary approaches of training, research, and clinical practice involved with exercise science and sports medicine. Essentially, the goal is to provide a more holistic perspective of the field by incorporating all relevant disciplines and medical expertise through working with student athletes, physician panels, and research and shadowing opportunities.
