Our fellows learn how to execute adult reconstructive procedures involving the shoulder and elbow. You perform advanced operative techniques to comprehensively treat shoulder and elbow disorders, and you come to understand and direct management of postoperative complications. Clinical research is also a key component of the fellowship.
The fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, and the fellow educates physician assistants at the monthly Physician Assistant Conference as well as in discussions during evaluations of patients in the office and in the operation room. You present at weekly conferences to the attending staff and as well as a formal Grand Rounds presentation.
Research is very important and prepares the fellow for positions in both clinical and academic medicine. It is expected that you will have at least one project accepted at a national meeting or one paper accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
