Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery Fellowship at Connecticut Children's. Our one-year, ACGME-accredited program provides fellows with experience in clinical and operative settings. The program immerses fellows in all facets of pediatric orthopaedic care including pediatric spine deformity, pediatric sports medicine, pediatric and young adult hip disorders, limb deformity, and the neuromuscular child.
