Hand Surgery Fellowship

Hand Surgery Fellowship

The Hand Surgery Fellowship Training Program is a one-year program that teaches the fundamentals of a career in hand and upper extremity surgery. Fellows will be exposed to the full spectrum of adult and pediatric clinical activities, teaching and research. Musculoskeletal health and well-being will continue to grow in demand, requiring practitioners committed to excellence in patient care, to investigate and expand the ever-broadening horizons of technology. Upon completion of the program, the fellow will be qualified to sit for the certificate of added qualification in hand surgery.

The Hand and Upper Extremity Center will provide the fellow with a comprehensive experience in all areas of hand and upper extremity surgery. The Ohio State University and the Department of Orthopaedics have fully equipped state of the art research facilities and research personnel to assist with fellow research, which is a requirement of the program. The fellow will participate in the treatment of amputations, mangling and devascularizing injuries to the hand and upper extremity. The fellow will take call at a Level 1 Trauma Center and will participate in both emergent and elective surgical treatment of wounds using conventional as well as microsurgical techniques.
