Fellowship Description:

The Paley Institute — Holy Cross Shoulder & Elbow fellowship provides exposure to a high volume community-based employed physician practice focused on shoulder and elbow surgery.  This fellowship uniquely focuses on comprehensive training through an academic model in a non-university setting — preparing the fellow for future roles in academic centers as well as non-academic community models. Each year, the shoulder and elbow fellow will participate in over 600 surgical procedures, with a high volume of primary and revision shoulder arthroplasty (over 300 cases), advanced shoulder & elbow arthroscopy (over 200 cases), shoulder & elbow fracture management, open shoulder reconstruction, elbow ligament repair/reconstruction, and elbow arthroplasty.  Surgical volume is split evenly between inpatient and outpatient procedures.

While working with Dr. Levy at the Paley Orthopedic & Spine Institute at West Boca, there are typically two surgical days, two and one half days of office hours, and a half day for research. The office setting will prepare the fellow with the key diagnostic tools needed to evaluate and treat all aspects of shoulder and elbow pathology – including diagnostic and therapeutic in-office ultrasound.  The experience in the office will give excellent exposure to critical aspects of practice management including proper documentation and coding skills.

The fellow will have here is opportunity to spend additional time at Holy Cross Hospital, rotating with Ross Wodicka, MD and Andrew Lovy, MD, to gain additional exposure to Orthopaedic Sports Medicine with a focus on sports-related shoulder injuries as well as hand/upper extremity surgery.

Together with the dedicated research staff at both the Paley Institute and Holy Cross Research Institute, the fellow will be able to collaborate in active ongoing clinical research working together with the annual clinical research fellow.  The fellow will be encouraged to complete at least one clinical research project.

ER call is optional, and fellows will rotate taking practice call together with the physician assistant team.

Prospective applicants must be able to obtain a Florida State Medical License to be eligible for the fellowship.
