Stanford Sports Medicine To Host Physical Therapy Traveling Fellows
This September 20th-22nd, Stanford Sports Medicine will be hosting three physical therapists (PTs) as part of the Sports Physical Therapy Section (SPTS), “Kevin Wilk Traveling Fellowship” sponsored by DonJoy Global. The Sports Physical Therapy Section (SPTS) is a component of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), which provides a common forum for members of the association with an interest in sports physical therapy. The Kevin Wilk Traveling fellowship allows 3 highly qualified PT’s to spend a week traveling to 3 different sites in the country, where they can learn directly from leaders in the sports medicine field. The PT fellows spend 1-2 days at each site gaining experience and knowledge in sports medicine from each institution. This year, along with Stanford Sports Medicine, the PT fellows will be traveling to the University of Cincinnati and the University of Wisconsin.
The following three PT’s will be joining Stanford Sports Medicine on September 20th; Chris Wilson, Robert Metzger Jr., and Michael Bogden. As a part of the traveling fellowship the PT fellows must present on pertinent sports medicine topics to the staff at each location. Chris Wilson, PT, DPT, CHES, will present “Review of Evidence on Heel Pain in the Context of Clinical Practice Guidelines”. Robert Metzger Jr. PT, DPT, SCS, ACSM EP-C , will present a “Case Report on Rehabilitation Progress S/P ACL Primary Repair with Internal Bracing”. Lastly, Michael Bogden, PT, DPT, SCS, will present on “Exercise Dosage”.
Floyd Vito Cruz, staff physical therapist, states, “We are eager to be hosting these PT fellows and hope to share our collaborative and innovative approach.”
This affiliation with the APTA reinforces Stanford Sports Medicine as a leader in sports medicine in the United States. Stay tuned for more details!
