The Division of Comprehensive spine center in the University of connecticut's Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is seeking highly qualified physicians who have completed orthopaedic residency training and want to continue their surgical training as an orthopaedic spine fellow. ECFMG certified International Medical Grades are welcome to apply.
We have developed a comprehensive training program that will expose fellows to all aspects of spinal care, including the operative and non-operative treatment of degenerative, deformity, neoplastic and traumatic conditions. Our graduates will be prepared to pursue careers in both academic and private practice settings and be well equipped to treat patients using both traditional and complex minimally invasive techniques. Trainees will work at both UConn Health, an academic medical center, and Hartford Hospital, a tertiary care Level I trauma center. Fellows will have dedicated research time to pursue clinical, biomechanical and/or basic science projects under the supervision of our core Spine faculty. 
Fellow will have typically 3-4 OR days and 1/2 or 1 clinic day per week. Time in clinic will be divided evenly throughout the year between each faculty member. The fellow will be an integral part of the team caring for the inpatient service and in the OR. Our clinical team includes 4 faculty members, 2 NPs and 2 PM&R. Operative autonomy will grow throughout the year and will be tailored to individual skill level. Our goal is for surgeons who complete this fellowship will possess the skill set to independently perform from small MIS discectomy to big deformity case   confidently. One completed research project is required for graduation from the program and collaboration with the research fellows and coordinators is encouraged.

In the last calendar year our surgeons surgically treated…
Overall- 300-320 cases
Lumbar degernative cases - 40%
Cervical degernative case - 25-30%
Open and MIS Deformity cases- -15%
Infection and tumor cases - 10%
Trauma cases- 5-10%
