Goals and characteristics:

The fellowship includes the participation in the care of patients in the private office practice of the attending surgeons, assisting in the operating room, and performing surgery under the direction of the fellowship attending staff, supervising resident surgery activities, and contributing to the overall educational program. The Fellow can anticipate significant independent activities in terms of conducting resident/fellow conference, surgical technique laboratories, and operative surgical time. The fully staffed Surgical Techniques and Technologies (STAT) laboratory allows state of the art arthroscopic and open surgical training.  Fellows are encouraged to use the STAT lab to enhance their technical skills. The STAT lab is also available for a full complement of biomechanics research.  Fellows also participate in numerous national and international conferences and present their research at a minimum of 2 conferences per year including the San Diego Shoulder Course.  Standard educational activities include a monthly anatomical dissection program, journal club, and interactive conferences. Multiple basic science, translational,and clinical research opportunities are available; participation in ongoing projects has been encouraged and has generally resulted in excellent academic productivity. The shoulder and elbow experience is anticipated to be extensive with over 1000 cases per year being performed. Approximately 80% of the cases are shoulder and 20% are elbow. Operative experience includes a high volume of primary and revision shoulder arthroplasty (over 250 arthroplasty cases are performed annually), advanced shoulder and elbow arthroscopy, open shoulder reconstruction, shoulder and elbow fracture management, elbow ligament repair/reconstruction, and elbow arthroplasty. Together with the research staff, the Fellow will be expected to participate in active clinical and/or biomechanical research. The Fellow will be encouraged to complete at least one research project. There are no on-call responsibilities.  A research team with medical editor is available to assist in writing, IRB approval and publication.

The Department of Orthopaedics enjoys prominence and respect within the hospital and the city of Baltimore and the surrounding mid-Atlantic region.
