  • Master Degree Graduate Assistantships in Sports Medicine

    Sports Medicine Graduate Assistantships are Available

    The graduate program in Sports Medicine from Sports Medicine and
    Nutrition (School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences) at the
    University of Pittsburgh is accepting applications from students
    interested in receiving a MS in Sports Medicine. The MS in Sports
    Medicine is structured to provide coursework in the major academic areas
    of sports medicine, physiology, biomechanics, injury evaluation and
    treatment, rehabilitation, physical training, anatomy, education,
    nutrition, pathokinesiology, statistics, and research methodology. Both
    thesis and non-thesis routes are available. Thesis route students are
    provided with research experience in the Neuromuscular Research
    Laboratory housed within the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center,
    Center for Sports Medicine. The research experience in the Neuromuscular
    Research Laboratory focuses on issues central to clinical research in
    orthopedics and sports medicine. Research includes the use of motion
    analysis (video and electromagnetics) electromyography, isokinetic
    dynamometry, metabolic instrumentation, and proprioceptive and balance
    assessment modalities for the purpose of defining and restoring function
    in the injured athlete and physically active individual. Weekly
    seminars sponsored by the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports
    Medicine provide students with access to the most current research and
    clinical developments related to patient care.

    Graduate assistantships are available within University of Pittsburgh
    Athletics and UPMC Center for Sports Medicine to those who qualify.
    Assistantships include full tuition waiver, stipend, and access to
    health insurance. Typically assistantships are one-year appointments
    renewable annually.
