What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
I love my specialty of Sports Medicine because it involves working with athletes or the general population to improve fitness and sports performance or to work with those to prevent or recover from sport injuries I chose Primary care sports medicine because it focuses on treating the “whole” patient to prevent injury, improve performance and enhance overall health. This field has evolved beyond treatment of common athletic injuries to comprehensive health care for all active patients.
