The Clinical Curriculum Series published in Current Sports Medicine Reports (CSMR), was created to assist those working in graduate medical education and those in residency faculty positions. This series has been a point of emphasis and interest to CSMR readers since its launch in 2020.
“I am very excited and proud of how this came together. What started as a discussion between some fellow family medicine and sports medicine colleagues on what should be the baseline musculoskeletal training and experience, developed into a series of eight informative and influential articles,” explained CSMR Editor-in-Chief Shawn F. Kane, M.D., FACSM. “Along with family medicine, other specialties, pediatrics, emergency medicine, internal medicine and physiatry can pursue fellowship training in Primary Care Sports Medicine. As we started the family medicine manuscript, we reached out and partnered with the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine and representatives of the other specialties to create the series. We then expanded on the original series and added topics related to undergraduate medical education and fellowship training. I am very open to adding to this series; if there are topics CSMR should add please reach out,” Kane said.
