The MacNeal Difference


With over 25 years of training fellows, the Loyola MacNeal fellowship has been a fixture in the Chicago sports medicine community since the beginning of the specialty. Our graduates live and practice all over the country in every type of sports medicine practice.


Based at Loyola Medicine MacNeal Hospital, just west of Chicago, the MacNeal Sports Medicine Fellowship immerses fellows in the Chicago sports scene. Fellows cover athletes at all levels of competition throughout the Chicagoland area, while enjoying all the advantages of living in Chicago.

Extensive Coverage

Loyola MacNeal fellows act as team and site physicians for collegiate and high school teams as well as several large citywide road races. We pride ourselves on providing coverage throughout the fellowship year, enuring that our graduates are well prepared to function as a physician at any level of sports coverage.

Nationally Known Faculty at Premiere Teaching Sites

Our fellows work with highly respected faculty at established sports medicine practices throughout the city of Chicago. Fellows have experiences at the University of Chicago, Loyola University Medical Center, and our own Loyola Medicine MacNeal Hospital Center for Sports and Performance.

Sports Medicine Ultrasound

We recognize that competency in ultrasound is important for future sports medicine physicians. Our fellows are exposed to sports medicine ultrasound regularly in clinic, as well as through an organized curriculum.  

Fellow Focused

Our goal is to help you meet your professional goals. Each fellow’s interests and educational priorities are considered to best meet his or her individual needs.
