The Primary Care Sports Medicine (PCSM) Fellowship program at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital received accreditation in 2011 by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), following a peer review process and thorough evaluation of established standards and guidelines.

The Houston Methodist PCSM Fellowship program is only one of two currently in the greater Houston area.

The program provides fellows with a broader understanding of the unique needs of the athletic population - setting a precedence in sports medicine training.

Under the direction of Scott Rand, MD, FAAFP, CAQSM, fellows receive multidisciplinary training on the advanced diagnosis and treatment of a broad spectrum of sports medicine-related injuries and illnesses affecting all ages and skill levels - from recreational athletes and weekend warriors to Olympic and professional athletes.

PCSM Fellowship training includes:
  • Musculoskeletal sports injuries and conditions
  • Mild traumatic brain injuries
  • Computerized neuropsychological testing in concussion management
  • EMG interpretation
  • Rehabilitative medicine
  • Acute and chronic illnesses impacting training and performance
  • Impact of exercise on certain medical conditions
