Elective Rotation: Santa Rosa Sports Medicine
Contact: Lisa Nicholson, Santa Rosa Sports Medicine
Location: 1255 North Dutton Ave
Spending time with a local Sports Medicine trained family doctor. The experience is primarily shadowing but it is useful for 1) Improving joint exams 2)Understanding stretches and exercises to treat different MSK conditions 3) Familiarity with treatment of concussion acutely as well as post concussive disorders 4)For people interested in a sports med fellowship Dr. Affleck is a great example of an independent sports med doc. He has no computer in the room, uses a mix of EMR and paper, and has great longitudinal relationships with his patients.
To arrange this elective I just called the main line, explained that I was a resident and noted which days I was interested in being in clinic. His assistant kindly scheduled me.
