The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, Northwell Health, New York, New York invite all interested and qualified individuals to apply for a two-year orthopaedic research fellowship position with Michael A. Mont, M.D. This is a salaried position that will begin on July 1, 2019, and is open to all candidates who will be eligible to apply for the Residency Match for 2021.

This fellowship presents an opportunity to work with national and international leaders in the areas of total joint replacement, to assist with FDA trials of new drugs and devices, to gather and analyze data, to attend and present your work at regional and national conferences, and to prepare manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals. Previous fellows have published multiple PubMed-listed articles and have presented at the annual AAOS meetings during their fellowships. This is an excellent way to improve your CV and increase your chance of matching to an orthopaedic residency.

Previous research fellows, including allopathic, osteopathic, and IMGs, have successfully entered U.S. orthopaedic residency programs (95% success rate). Although the fellowship has an incredibly high success rate, the historic success is due to the drive and commitment of the applicant. We are looking for someone who is willing to work hard and smart for 2-years.
