Hand Fellowship Program

Our program is designed to provide a broad experience in hand and upper extremity surgery, including trauma, arthritis, congenital, and microsurgery. The Fellow is an integral member of a very active clinical service involving surgery, outpatient evaluations, and emergency care.  The Fellow may choose to be involved in a broad spectrum of elbow and shoulder reconstructive surgery that our service also regularly provides. The Fellow is encouraged to engage in research with opportunities in both clinical and laboratory investigation in one of our excellent research facilities. Candidates must be board-eligible in orthopedic surgery. Upon completion of the program, the surgeon will have achieved a sound knowledge base and competent surgical skills to pursue a comprehensive hand and upper extremity surgery practice.
