Residents have the opportunity to work with physicians, collaborate with our Human Performance teams and participate in outreach opportunities, including IRONMAN-sponsored events. Residents work in Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation clinics, which include four IRONMAN Sports Medicine Institute locations. The advanced curriculum is based on the Description of Specialty Practice (DSP) for Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy and meets the requirements set by the American Board of Residency and Fellowship Education.
