Afterward, Dr. Campbell spent one year pre-residency doing orthopaedics at Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia, during which time he developed an interest in sports medicine through close association of the program in Fort Benning with the Houston Sports Medicine Clinic, in addition to an orthopaedic residency at Letterman Army Medical Center in San Francisco.
