Training that is at the forefront of the care of the foot and ankle is the goal of this fellowship. To fulfill this goal, a broad-based and very active clinical program is available. Clinically, the fellow learns from the practice of several physicians who specialize in foot and ankle surgery in an academic setting, including Elizabeth A. Cody MD; Jonathan T. Deland, MD; Constantine A. Demetracopoulos, MD; Mark C. Drakos, MD; Andrew J. Elliot, MD; Scott J. Ellis, MD; Anne Holland Johnson, MD; David S. Levine, MD; John G. Kennedy, MD; Martin J. O'Malley, MD; and Matthew M. Roberts, MD.
 
Our ACGME-accredited program is comprised of ten full-time orthopaedic surgeons, one non-operative podiatrist, one musculoskeletal radiologist and one non-operative physiatrist. Our service employs a multidisciplinary approach to treat the broad range of foot and ankle conditions that can occur at any stage of life, from non-operative conditions to the most complex acute traumatic injuries and chronic deformities. Our service performs over 2,700 surgeries each year and is committed to improve techniques for treating the often challenging disorders of the foot and ankle. Our fellows can expect to perform 400-500 cases per year covering the spectrum of foot and ankle pathology, providing our fellows with a strong foundation and a wide array of technical skills. 
 
Each year, the service trains three fellows. Our fellows have mentorship-type rotations as well as adequate time with all of our foot and ankle specialists. Each fellow gains exposure to the operating rooms, private offices, research labs, and community clinic. The fellows have the opportunity to be involved in multiple research projects and are encouraged and funded to present their research findings at national conferences. Academically, the service maintains a weekly conference of fellow-presented topics designed to cover the core curriculum. A monthly Journal Club, monthly Complex Case Conference and quarterly Morbidity and Mortality Conference will enhance the fellows' educational experience. Our fellows will also have weekly radiology case conferences and a monthly cadaver lab. Our fellowship program provides residency graduates with the clinical knowledge and technical skills to have highly successful careers in either academic orthopaedics or private practice.
