Didactic learning is offered primarily through weekly fellow conferences and through one of two professional conferences: American Sports Medicine Institute’s Injuries in Baseball course or the Professional Baseball Athletic Training Societies’ Baseball Medicine Conference. Guided research activity is threaded throughout the program with the fellows choosing a project based on interest and available resources.
