University of California-Davis Health System has available post-match vacancies for their Spine Disorders Fellowship program.
The Spine Fellowship is a one-year program that provides extensive clinical exposure to the evaluation and treatment of pediatric and adult spinal deformities including kyphosis, neuromuscular scoliosis, congenital disorders, degenerative problems of the cervical and lumbar spine, and spine trauma and spinal cord injury. The fellow will work closely with four attending surgeons in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.
The fellowship is designed to allow increasing responsibility in the clinics and in surgery. The fellow will also have weekly time allotments for basic science and clinical research projects. Current basic science research in the department involves animal models and biomechanical analysis of spinal implants in the cervical and thoracolumbar spine. The fellowship is oriented toward training a qualified individual in all aspects of spinal surgery in preparation for an academic position after completion of the program.
Eligible applicants must have completed orthopedics residency.
Our program participates in the San Francisco Match. All applicants are required to be registered with the San Francisco Match Program (www.sfmatch.org).
