Shoulder and Elbow Fellowship

About the Shoulder and Elbow Fellowship

Goals and Characteristics

This fellowship offers an extensive experience in the surgical and nonsurgical management of disorders of the shoulder and elbow under the supervision of three full-time faculty members. The Shoulder and Elbow Service manages in excess of 10,000 outpatient visits per year and performs 1,400 surgical cases a year. This extensive clinical volume guarantees exposures to a wide variety of traumatic, degenerative, and athletic injuries. The fellowship experience includes training in the most advanced arthroscopic and open reconstructive surgeries of the shoulder and elbow.

Research Opportunities

Research, both clinical and basic science, is an integral part of the fellowship experience. The basic science research is conducted through the McKay Orthopaedic Research Laboratory under the direction of Louis Soslowsky, PhD. The research team includes a full-time staff of post-doctoral research fellows, pre-doctoral bioengineering students, and two orthopaedic research residents. The clinical research program includes the active participation of the fellows, residents, physician extenders, and therapists involved with the Shoulder and Elbow Service. The fellow is expected to participate in clinical research projects and preparation of scientific publications.

Requirements

Candidates must be eligible for employment in the United States and be eligible for a medical license prior to training. Interviews will be conducted between Labor Day and December 13. Positions will be offered in mid-December according to the ASES match process.
