Profile: This is a one-year preceptor-based fellowship that provides a very broad scope of education opportunity. It is under the direction of 4 fellowship-trained orthopaedic foot and ankle faculty, each with years of experience and specific areas of expertise. Clinically, the fellow will be exposed to common, uncommon, and complex conditions in a high-volume private practice setting. Our institution has a well-established orthopaedic research department. Dedicated and protected time for clinical and basic science research is an important part of the experience.

Curriculum Statement: Every requisite condition and surgical procedure defined by the AOFAS curriculum guide will be comprehensively and repetitively covered. Structured didactics attended by faculty, residents, and fellows take place weekly and will follow a rotating curriculum guide. Other education requirements involve a monthly research meeting, periodic journal club, and occasional state and regional symposia. One of the distinguishing features of the surgical experience is an invaluable case mix of common foot and ankle procedures as well as extensive exposure to complex ankle arthroplasty, revision ankle arthroplasty, limb deformity and limb salvage procedures.
