Meet Dr. Alexandra Matthews, Sports Medicine Specialist

About ten to fourteen years are needed in order to complete the educational requirements to become a sports medicine physician.  One must first graduate from college with a bachelor’s degree, then go to medical school which takes an average of four years to complete.  Medical school is followed by a residency and fellowship, which can take an additional two to four years.  Then board certification requirements must be completed.

Dr. Matthews completed a family practice residency program after medical school and a fellowship of specialized training in sports medicine. She is board certified.
