    Awards & recognitions

    The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine Junior Traveling Fellows

    Dr. Smoot was one of only three sports medicine providers selected by the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) to travel to Japan from Sept. 17 through Oct. 2, 2019 with Senior Fellow Brian Halpern, MD, a founder and past president of AMSSM.  

    The purpose of the AMSSM Traveling Fellowship program is to encourage academic interchange, share research and explore common clinical interests among sports medicine leaders. The experience includes the opportunity to view live patient encounters, tour sports medicine facilities, share cases and spend time with regional experts in sports medicine.

    The Traveling Fellowship program is funded from an educational grant provided to the AMSSM Foundation from DJO Global.

    "I am excited to represent the AMSSM in 2019 as a traveling fellow to Japan," Smoot said. "The opportunity to learn of international models of sports medicine care and possible clinical and academic collaboration with our colleagues from Japan is truly an honor. I thank the AMSSM Foundation and DJO Global for supporting this activity.

    I have been coming to UK Sports Medicine for years. I have found the attendings to be excellent and also the residents. I would not go anywhere else.

    Great experience.

    November, 2019
    my son used the sports walk in clinic, this is the greatest thing for our community, I work for another healthcare facility in town, but I have praised the easy access, the caring staff, and the quickness in being seen. We were so happy with our sons care and the knowledge and time the provider took to explain to us the concern and the plan of action. Thank You UK HealthCare from a football Mom!!

    I was very appreciative of the orthopedic walk-in clinic at UK Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Clinic. Even though I had to wait a while to see the physician, it was understandable given the nature of the clinic. Going to the ER for a broken toe would have been very inconvenient and expensive. This was an excellent experience and took care of the problem in a very timely and professional manner.
