The Pediatric Orthopedics and Scoliosis Fellowship is designed to provide the orthopedic surgeon who has already completed an orthopedic surgery residency program with subspecialty training in all aspects of children’s orthopedic surgery and scoliosis.
This program is ranked as one of the top programs in North America; each year, the most talented orthopedic residents in the country compete for a position.
The one-year program combines both clinical training and research. Clinical training encompasses all areas of pediatric orthopedics, including trauma, acute infections, scoliosis, hip preservation, lower extremity deformity, neuromuscular disease (patients with this disease are seen at our pediatric neuromuscular clinic), children’s hip and foot/ankle conditions, sports medicine, congenital hand conditions, and brachial plexus management.
On the research side, a wide variety of clinical and basic research projects can be pursued. The fellow is expected to complete at least one research project of publishable quality during the fellowship period.
