Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgery
This one-year fellowship program offers exposure to a broad spectrum of orthopaedic foot and ankle disorders at a busy Level I academic trauma center. The curriculum provides a well-rounded experience of managing operative and non-operative care to orthopaedic foot and ankle patients. It is designed to cover all aspects of adult foot and ankle disorders, as well as those topics outlined in the AOFAS recommended foot and ankle curriculum. Fellows participate in the preoperative, intra-operative and postoperative management of surgical patients as well as using advanced pedorthic, orthotic, and prosthetic techniques for non-surgical patients. Opportunities to perform basic science and clinical research are provided.
Fellows are expected to attend regularly scheduled lectures, journal club, foot conferences, and anatomy dissection sessions as well as participate in relevant research projects in conjunction with the orthopaedic biomechanics laboratory and gait laboratory. As a clinical instructor, the fellow is also responsible for teaching medical students and residents, as well as lecturing at conferences and participating in journal clubs. By the end of the fellowship, completion of two papers of publishable quality is required.
