Goals and Characteristics

This is a one-year research position that involves observation and clinical research. The applicant would spend the year observing clinic, surgery and conferences. Every researcher is expected to write several papers for publication. Some research projects can involve basic science, including dissections and cell biology.

This fellowship exposes you to a wide variety of shoulder conditions and shoulder procedures — open and arthroscopic. A wide variety of shoulder problems, including rotator cuff disease, arthroplasty, SLAP lesions and other soft tissue problems are encountered.

There is a weekly didactic conference on shoulder conditions, including a journal club and review of commonly used textbooks.

A second year in the laboratory is available for qualified applicants.
