UT Ortho joins NFL 2023 Diversity in Sports Medicine Pipeline Initiative

July 19, 2023

For the first time, McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston will participate in the National Football League’s (NFL) 2023 Diversity in Sports Medicine Pipeline Initiative, which aims to increase and diversify the pipeline of students interested in pursuing careers in sports medicine and, over time, to help diversify NFL club medical staffs.

During the one-month rotation, Analisa Narro, a fourth-year student at McGovern Medical School, will observe and participate in the care of players, working directly with and under the supervision of our orthopedic team physicians Dr. James Muntz and Dr. Steven Flores, primary care team physicians, and athletic trainers. Additionally, students will become familiar with return-to-play guidelines and on-field treatment considerations for NFL players.
