The Mayo Clinic Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine invites third year medical students to apply for a one-year clinical research fellowship position starting Spring of 2018.

For more information, you can view our fellowship information packet here:

This is a wonderful opportunity for a highly-motivated individual to strengthen their application for the Orthopedic Residency Match. The research fellow will be expected to work on numerous projects with several investigators; therefore, excellent organizational and communication skills are paramount. Duties include project design, scientific literature search, data collection, progress updates, and book chapter and manuscript preparation.

You will have the opportunity to work with six board-certified Sports Medicine orthopedic surgeons and the chance to spend one day a week in the Biomechanics lab with Dr. Timothy E. Hewett. Time in the biomechanics lab will give fellows a chance to focus on clinically relevant basic science research with a focus on ACL injuries and ACL injury prevention.

Our previous fellows have been prolific, with typically 10-15 accepted or published manuscripts and numerous abstracts accepted for presentation at national/international meetings during the year which they receive funding to attend. In addition fellows have the opportunity to practice surgical skills and review relevant anatomy working in the cadaver lab with residents/attendings, take part in an online biostatistics course, and attend weekly didactic sessions in various disciplines within orthopedics to develop a strong fund of knowledge.

All 13 previous fellows have successfully matched in residency programs, and we are confident that our current fellows will match this year as well. If you have any additional questions regarding the fellowship, please contact our current fellow Vishal Desai (This email address is being protected from spambots.
