Goals and Characteristics
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, including Jonathan T. Deland, MD; Constantine A. Demetracopoulos, MD; Mark C. Drakos, MD; Andrew J. Elliot, MD; Scott J. Ellis, MDDavid S. Levine, MD; John G. Kennedy, MD; Martin J. O'Malley, MD; and Matthew M. Roberts, MD, who specialize in foot and ankle surgery in an academic setting.

Training is primarily focused on adult reconstructive surgery, but also includes sports-related injuries, pediatric foot and ankle surgery, and trauma. Surgically, each Fellow participates in the services of all the physicians. Fellows gain a wide breadth of experience, graduating with a Fellowship Diploma from Hospital for Special Surgery.

Research possibilities are extensive and include anatomy, biomechanics, and gait laboratories with Ph.D. support. If desired, numerous projects can be accomplished. One completed project is required.

The fellowship is designed to give a well-motivated individual the opportunity to take advantage of the depth of clinical and research training available at these two medical centers, while having time to enjoy New York City.
