Research

The University of Washington Sports Medicine Fellow is actively encouraged to become involved in scholarly activities during the fellowship year. Part of this experience includes involvement in clinical or academic research. While all fellows are given an option to design and implement their own project over the year, many have chosen to become involving in ongoing research conducted by faculty members.
Jonathan Drezner, M.D., associate director of the fellowship, has actively pursued research in the fields of emergency preparedness and sudden cardiac arrest in the athletic setting. Kim Harmon, M.D., fellowship director, also actively has pursued research in the fields of sudden cardiac arrest and tendinopathy. Past fellows have assisted in Drs. Drezner and Harmon's research and have even been given the honor and distinction of giving podium presentations regarding their research with him at the AMSSM national meeting and other regional conferences. Our residents and fellows have been prolific at the AMSSM annual meetings, winning multiple research awards:
