The Hand and Upper Extremity Fellowship program offers an abundantly diverse educational and operative experience. The primary goal of the fellowship program is to expose and train fellows in a wide range of treatments from the most complex peripheral nerve dysfunction to the more common sports-related injuries to the hand.
Our fellowship is unique in its in-depth representation of subspecialty interests among the 10 faculty members in hand surgery, including sports and traumatic injuries of the entire upper extremity, cerebral palsy, elbow reconstruction, brachial plexus surgery, limb-sparing tumor procedures, microsurgery and arthroscopy. The fellowship boasts a wide depth and breadth of hand surgery experience, with a rich didactic and clinical program.
Fellows have sufficient time to pursue independent learning, and have protected time and resources to complete and present a research project at the conclusion of the year. A broad network of national and international contacts among the attending staff has facilitated postgraduate mini-fellowships in areas such as congenital hand and microsurgery.
Apply for this fellowship through the American Society for Surgery of the Hand
