Campbell Medicine honors Sports Medicine Fellows

The Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine honored Dr. Shaun C. Knox and Dr. Mohammed Qureshi for their outstanding achievement and contribution to the School’s Sports Medicine Fellowship.

“In Sports Medicine, you have many customers — the athlete, the coaches, the trainers … Dr. Knox and Dr. Qureshi both assimilated into the profession, and we are grateful for their service to the University and community,” said Dr. John Kauffman, Jr., dean.

Throughout the past year, Knox and Qureshi were responsible for seeing patients in the Campbell University Health Center, teaching in the Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) Lab, being on the sidelines for high school and University athletic events and conducting research in the Human Performance Lab.

“With some weeks extending into 80-hours, Dr. Knox and Dr. Qureshi have been committed to serving our community and the University,” said Matt Huff, director of post-graduate affairs.

“I was looking for further training in the musculoskeletal system and ultrasound. I received that and much more here at Campbell,” said Qureshi, a native Texan and a graduate of the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine at the University of North Texas.

Knox, an alumnus of Touro University and Washington State University, came to Campbell from Portland, Oregon where he was an internal medicine resident physician. Knox found training in the Human Performance and OMM Labs to be an invaluable clinical aspect of the program.

“Thank you, Drs. Knox and Qureshi for teaching our students, working hard and serving our community,” said Dr. Andrew Martin, director of Sports Medicine.

Knox will remain at Campbell Medicine, where he will serve as a fellow of the NMM-OMM Plus-one Residency and a faculty member. “I am excited to stay and look forward to teaching future physicians,” said Knox.

Qureshi will continue to pursue Sports Medicine at a clinic in Chicago where he will be responsible for creating its first ever Sports Medicine/Regenerative Medicine program.
