The Shoulder and Elbow Fellowship program at Montefiore Medical Center offers an extensive and comprehensive clinical experience in the operative and nonoperative management of shoulder and elbow disorders. The fellowship is a one year clinical program with a significant research component. The Fellow is provided with the opportunity to work closely with the attending surgeons on the Shoulder and Elbow Service. Exposure to patients presenting with a wide variety of pathology, including conditions of traumatic, degenerative, and athletic etiology is offered. Opportunity to participate in the orthopaedic management of college athletic teams adds to the experience.
The Fellow will evaluate patients pre- and post-operatively and will participate actively in the operative cases. Advanced methods of both arthroscopic and open surgery are performed with the most current techniques. There are over 400 shoulder and elbow procedures performed annually. In addition to the clinical education during attending office hours and weekly conferences, the Fellow participates in the formal didactic lectures provided and takes an active role in resident education.
The Fellow is required to complete two research projects. The projects can be either clinical or basic science in nature and must be completed and in publishable form by the end of the fellowship year. To that end, the Fellow participates in our Multidisciplinary Shoulder Research Group along with a research coordinator, rheumatologists, physical therapists, pain management physicians, as well as our shoulder surgeons.
