The Kevin Wilk Traveling Fellowship 


 Due to COVID19, the Fall 2020 Traveling Fellowship sites have been canceled.  The Academy will notify members when the program resumes. 


There’s no question that residencies and fellowships help develop sports physical therapists’ abilities for advanced competencies in the field. These programs allow professionals to develop their skills under the mentorship of a recognized clinical expert. Residencies and fellowships require the dedication of many hours of time toward the program...something that can be difficult to arrange in the post-graduate world. The Sports Academy is here to assist.

In partnership with sponsors DJO Global and LightForce Therapy Lasers, the AASPT is pleased to present the Kevin Wilk Traveling Fellowship. Fellows apply and are selected to spend 7-10 days traveling to three educational sites, spending two to three days each with noted leaders in our field. At each site, fellows will be involved in various activities:

  • Observation of the host therapist in the clinic
  • Surgery observation
  • Didactic component
  • Social activities to expand the fellows’ professional network

Up to six AASPT members may participate each year (three in the fall and another three in the spring) at no cost out of pocket.  

Please check back in Fall 2020 for information about Spring 2021 Fellowship sites.

Thank you to our generous sponsors for helping to make the Wilk Traveling Fellowship possible.
