SPTS Traveling Fellowship

The SPTS Kevin Wilk Traveling Fellowship

There’s no question that residencies and fellowships help develop sports physical therapists’ abilities for advanced competencies in the field. These programs allow professionals to develop their skills under the mentorship of a recognized clinical expert.

Residencies and fellowships require the dedication of many hours of time toward the program…something that can be difficult to arrange in the post-graduate world.

The SPTS is pleased to announce the creation of the SPTS Kevin Wilk Traveling Fellowship. Fellows will spend a single week traveling to three educational sites, spending one to two days each with noted leaders in our field. At each site, fellows will be involved in various activities:

• Observation of the host therapist in the clinic
• Surgery observation
• Didactic component
• Social activities to expand the fellows’ professional network

The SPTS Traveling Fellowship is funded by SPTS and corporate sponsor DJO Global, which will allow one to two SPTS members to participate each year.
