Penn Orthopaedics

Adult Reconstruction Fellowship

A one-year, full-time academic fellowship is available in adult reconstruction for board-eligible Orthopaedic Surgeons. This program is designed to give intensive experience in all phases of adult reconstruction, in particular the hip and knee. The fellowship experience is integrated with the residency program and after appropriate experience and background, the fellow will supervise the Hip and Knee Clinic, as well as adult reconstruction on the clinic service. There is significant clinical exposure, and the fellow will obtain excellent operating experience.

In addition, the fellow is encouraged to participate in the extensive teaching conferences and research seminars, which are an integral part of the residency program. There is an active laboratory available for fellows who are interested in pursuing laboratory research. It is anticipated that each fellow will become involved in research, either on a clinical or laboratory project related to adult reconstruction.
