James P. Bradley, MD, will be the fourth alumnus of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic Sports Medicine Fellowship Program to become president of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine.
1. Dr. Bradley is set to succeed fellow Kerlan-Jobe alumnus Neal S. ElAttrache, MD, who is head physician for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Rams, as well as co-chair of medical affairs at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles.
2. Dr. Bradley will be installed as AAOSM president July 11 at the society's annual meeting in Boston. He is well-known for his research in sports medicine and serves as head team orthopedic surgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
3. Another former Kerlan-Jobe fellow, Michael G. Ciccotti, MD, was selected to succeed Dr. Bradley in 2020-21. Dr. Ciccotti is director of sports medicine at the Rothman Orthopaedic Institute in Philadelphia.
4. The first Kerlan-Jobe alum to become AOSSM president was Clarence L. Shields Jr., MD, a former orthopedic consultant for the Los Angeles Rams who currently practices at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute. Dr. Shields was installed in 2001.
5. In 2011, Peter Indelicato, MD, became the second former Kerlan-Jobe fellow to serve as AOSSM president. He was the Miami Dolphins' team physician and is now an emeritus professor of sports medicine in the University of Florida's orthopedics and rehabilitation department in Gainesville.
6. Kerlan-Jobe partnered with Cedars-Sinai in 2014 to broaden its reach in sports medicine, becoming the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute. The Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic Sports Medicine Fellowship Program was established in 1973.
"I'm proud that Kerlan-Jobe's fellowship program has produced physicians and researchers who have contributed immensely to the field of sports medicine and to the AOSSM," Dr. ElAttrache said. "It is gratifying to see the Kerlan-Jobe program represented in such an important way."
