Children’s Hospital Boston

The Division of Sports Medicine at Children’s Hospital is a world-renowned sports medicine research facility and a leader in the treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention of pediatric, adolescent and adult sports and dance medicine injuries.

From its inception in 1974, the goal of the Division of Sports Medicine has been not only to provide clinical care to sports injured children and adolescents but also to conduct research into the etiology, risk factors, and prevention of injuries and health-related problems associated with organized sports participation. To date the Division of Sports Medicine has provided care to thousands of young athletes, including elite figure skaters and professional ballet dancers. The Division is equally renowned for the invaluable research it has conducted, and the students, physicians and graduate physicians it has trained.

The Division of Sports Medicine was the first facility in North America devoted to pediatric sports medicine and continues to enjoy a vaunted reputation in this field – both domestically and around the world.

The Skating Club of Boston is proud of its on-going support for The Division of Sports Medicine at Children’s Hospital Boston.
