A primary care sports medicine physician has advanced training in the
science of sports medicine. The training is extensive and includes 4 years of
medical school, 3 to 4 years of residency, and 1 to 2 years of fellowship
training. They are required to pass a certification exam in sports medicine in
order to receive a Certificate of Added Qualification in Sports Medicine
(CAQSM) with recertification every 10 years. This certification helps the
public distinguish a certified sports medicine physician from other
physicians treating injuries without this specialized training.
