This fellowship offers unique opportunities to the aspiring shoulder and elbow surgeon. Emphasis is divided between clinical patient care and research investigation. The preferred applicant will spend twelve months in a clinically-oriented program working on the services of Drs. Iannotti, Ricchetti and Evans, whose practice involves pathology and surgery of the shoulder and elbow. Time will also be spent with Dr. Mark Schickendantz, one of our sports medicine shoulder and elbow specialists.
At the completion of this fellowship program, the graduate should have a commanding knowledge of virtually all clinical problems related to pathology of the shoulder. The graduate will also be conversive in the latest publications related to disease of the shoulder and elbow. The diagnosis and management options of both common and unusual pathologic conditions related to the shoulder and elbow should be understood. The graduate is expected to be skilled in the surgical techniques consistent with the most currently available technologies. The graduate should be able to critically review and discuss orthopaedic research issues specifically related to the basic science and clinical science of shoulder related pathologies.
Although ongoing research projects related to the shoulder and elbow will be available to the Fellow, the applicant is also encouraged to initiate a project of his/her own design. Lastly, we view teaching as a foundational requirement of our Fellow. The transfer of orthopaedic knowledge and skills to our resident staff is one of our most important missions. The Shoulder and Elbow Fellow will be actively involved in our resident education programs both didactically and clinically.
We offer the additional opportunity for the Shoulder and Elbow Fellow to spend a second year in the laboratories involved in basic science or clinical investigation, though a second year is not required. During this time, the Fellow will also have responsibilities as an associate staff member and have opportunities to manage his/her own clinical patients with teaching oversight provided by the fellowship faculty.
This program is an ASES-recognized Shoulder & Elbow Fellowship Program and part of the SFMatch Fellowship selection process and Match program.
