Innovative Research Opportunities

Our one-year fellowship has a strong research program that provides you with opportunities to embark on projects matched to your interests and goals.

Many of our faculty members have received national recognition for their innovative research. 

Helpful Mentors

Our program has a favorable student-to-faculty ratio, which means you’ll receive personalized training from attentive instructors.

You’ll work with knowledgeable faculty members who are committed to developing your professionalism and competence in this exciting subspecialty.

Comprehensive Rotations

Our rotations give you extensive experience in the clinical care of patients undergoing primary and revision joint replacement of the hip and knee. 

At the bedside — as well as at our conferences and lectures — you’ll learn about primary and revision hip and knee procedures, posterior hip and periacetabular osteotomy procedures, anterior hip replacements and hip arthroscopy procedures as well as posterior hip and partial knee replacements.

Autonomy and Flexibility

We understand that a healthy work-life balance is critical to your well-being. In our program, you don’t have to compromise your personal life to be successful.

We fully support family leave for any fellow welcoming a new family member through birth, fostering or adoption. We also support medical leave if you need to care for a family member with a qualifying serious health condition.

Complementary Training Environments

As a fellow in our program, you'll train at our set of affiliated sites. Our fellowship prepares you to succeed in a variety of clinical settings that allow you to learn state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical approaches.
