The John A. Feagin, Jr. Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship Program at West Point is the only Dept. of Defense Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship and is partnered with the Orthopaedic Residency Program at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Annually, two active duty Fellows are trained here at West Point in the full spectrum of Orthopaedic Sports Medicine in preparation for future service to the entire DOD community.

West Point is world-renowned within the orthopaedic community as a leader in sports medicine surgery and research. Donohue will be assuming an exciting, multifaceted, and challenging position. In addition to clinical and teaching responsibilities, the Fellowship Director historically serves as the Head Team Physician for the Army West Point NCAA Division I sports programs, responsible for direct team coverage as well as the sideline and training-room care of athletes. Moreover, there are several ongoing complex research projects managed by the Fellowship Director in conjunction with Keller Army Community Hospital's robust research team that has consistently produced award-winning clinical studies.

“Maj. Donohue joins a distinguished lineage of Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship directors dedicated to the advancement of orthopaedic sports medicine education, research and care,” said Col. Posner.
