Dr. Young is a passion supporter of nurturing young physicians in the sports medicine community. The AMSSM student membership category is named in his honor.
“Whether it is a young and enthusiastic sports medicine fellow or a medical student who ends up practicing ophthalmology, this could only elevate the profile of primary care sports medicine to the level of every other specialty and beyond,” said Dr. Young.
In addition to serving as medical director of sports medicine in the department, Dr. Young co-directs the Annual Sports Symposium at the Medical College of Wisconsin and serves on a variety of Medical College of Wisconsin and professional committees. He has been the director of the Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship since 1993.

Dr. Young also provides coverage for a wide range of sporting and special events, including serving as medical director for the Lakefront Marathon and as a pool physician for the US Olympic Committee, which appointed him as a team physician for the 23rd Winter World University Games in Torino, Italy.
