Last year, we started the Yale Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship. We recently graduated our first fellow and wanted to share their review of the program below. We feel that this is a strong up and coming program with an emphasis on management of complex cases, fellow mentorship, and research opportunities.

We currently have an opening for the 2023-2024 academic year, and interested applicants should reach out to our program coordinator, Jeffrey Errico at

"The Yale University Orthopaedic Sports Medicine fellowship was an outstanding training experience for me. It offers scheduling flexibility, high case volume/complexity, mentorship, and research opportunities. I believe this fellowship provides enough volume and hands on opportunity to feel comfortable in the shoulder, knee, and hip. The faculty will allow ample autonomy in a graduated fashion throughout the year even on complex cases. All aspects of sports medicine are covered including multi-ligamentous knee surgery, revision ACL reconstruction, meniscal transplantation, cartilage restoration, patellofemoral instability, shoulder arthroplasty, and hip arthroscopy.There is a friendly, diverse, and welcoming environment among the faculty, residents, nurses, and medical students. The attendings take an active interest in what areas you would like to focus on and allow the opportunity to manage your schedule according to your personal goals.From an academic standpoint, there are ample opportunities to publish which is encouraged but not forced by the faculty. There is also a robust didactic schedule with educational conferences every Monday and a fellow education lecture every Wednesday. The fellow lecture solely aims to contribute to the fellow's education through MRI reading, case discussions, and faculty lectures.

There are also team coverage opportunities through Yale athletics and local high school coverage. The weekly schedule can vary but usually involves 3 days a week in the OR, 1.5 days in clinic, and a half day for research. There is no call requirement. Overall, this is an academically oriented fellowship with good case complexity, good surgical volume/autonomy, strong mentorship, and ample research opportunities."
