The New England Baptist Hospital Shoulder and Elbow Fellowship is a dedicated shoulder and elbow fellowship. During the one-year experience, the fellow will be introduced to a broad range of shoulder pathologies and procedures, from arthroscopy to arthroplasty. Our faculty at NEBH are currently performing a high volume of shoulder arthroplasty. The surgical experience includes exposure to the full spectrum of arthroscopic shoulder surgeries as well as more complex arthroscopic procedures including superior capsular reconstruction, AC joint reconstruction and arthroscopic tendon transfers. We estimate approximately 1300-1500 shoulder arthroscopies are performed at our surgical facilities. Only 30% of cases are covered by the current sports medicine fellows, thus alleviating concerns for cross-coverage and/or exposure issues. Elbow cases are also well represented for trauma, reconstruction, and arthroscopy. St Elizabeth Medical Center (SEMC) has partnered with New England Baptist Hospital (NEBH) for our Shoulder/Elbow fellowship. The 2 centers are located minutes apart geographically. SEMC sees a large volume of trauma, and allows the fellow to participate in fracture care for shoulder/elbow. Our shoulder/elbow division has been highly productive over the past several years with high quality research. A robust clinic experience, one day each week, fosters a one-on-one mentorship and supplements the surgical experience. A year long structured educational program, comprising of regular didactic lectures and cadaveric skills lab, is also provided. All of the staff are dedicated to providing education to fellows and residents. Several have been selected for yearly outstanding teaching awards by the fellows. After hours responsibilities are minimal.
This fellowship is an ASES approved Shoulder & Elbow Fellowship program and participates in the San Francisco Match.
