The Trauma Fellowship Program enhances our educational curriculum and continues to push us ahead of the curve. Our state-of-the art facilities and equipment combined with a complete research team provides you with world-class opportunities in research.
Fellows in our program will provide care in a Level I trauma center with more than 1,700 trauma admissions and 2,512 orthopaedic trauma procedures every year. Fellows will be a part of a multidisciplinary team that collaborates with specially-trained physicians, nurses, therapists, technicians and social workers with the capability of providing total care of every aspect of injury including prevention. Fellows will also have the opportunity to rotate at a private designated Level I trauma center that adds an additional 1,900 trauma activations per year to experience the practice of orthopaedic trauma in academic and private-practice settings.
We offer several learning opportunities beyond the standard orthopaedic trauma fellowship offerings. Those include multiligamentous knee reconstruction and osteochondral allograft procedures, shoulder and elbow reconstruction, young adult hip procedures (including periacetabular osteotomies and arthroscopy) and hip reconstruction (anterior arthroplasty). Our six fellowship-trained orthopaedic trauma surgeons provide the mentoring and oversight to prepare fellows for a career as an orthopaedic trauma surgeon both technically and academically.
Our programs offer the opportunity to personalize training based upon interest, including vast research opportunities. Fellows will live in a vibrant college town that provides the entertainment, sports and culture of a larger city while enjoying a relaxed atmosphere in a smaller environment.
