  • Good Question…

    At some schools, they have special sport medicine programs which are like nutrition meets a gym teacher-> thats a good start.

    But if you’re not so lucky, a school with biology, chemistry, english, mathematics, and a sports team would do the trick (intern with the team!!!)

    You’d go through 4 years of undergrad and 4 years at medical school. You’d study biology, anatomy, pathology, etc…

    As an intern you would choose internal medicine or surgery, depending on your taste and become an internal medicine doctor in 3 years or a general surgeon in 5. After that, you’d need to do a sports medical fellowship -> anywhere from 1 to 3 years after those 3 or five years.

    So, you’re looking at like 15 years of schooling before being titled "a sports medical doctor," or a "sports medical surgeon."

    As an internist you would make like $125,000 to $175,000.

    As a S.M. surgeon you could around a little bit more than a orthosurgeon- about $200,000 to $250,000, but it also depends on your practice, hopsital, and patients.
