Program Outcomes

The Sports Physical Therapy Residency at University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics consistently produces practitioners of sports rehabilitation that graduate to become leaders, clinicians, and educators in a variety of sports settings across the country.

Overall, our program has a 100% graduation rate and 100% of our residents pass the SCS on their first attempt.

At the current time, we have three graduates who are in PhD programs continuing with research they started as residents or in a very similar area. One is working at Mayo Scottsdale, helping develop their sports rehab program. One was accepted to an Upper Extremity Fellowship and now is the Director of Minor League Rehabilitation for the Cleveland Indians. One is working at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado. Two are currently employed with us at UW Health Sports Rehabilitation and are increasing their involvement with the residency. Five others work at sports medicine clinics in Wisconsin, Michigan, Utah and Washington and either have started or added specialty clinic services at their clinic or are also doing some specialty work as fee-for-service. One of our current residents has been accepted to Duke’s Division I athlete Fellowship.
