The Duke Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery Fellowship experience includes an opportunity to participate in the acute evaluation and management of orthopaedic injuries, and evaluation and treatment of post-traumatic deformities and nonunions. Special emphasis will be placed on both acute and delayed reconstruction of pelvic and acetabular fractures as well as osteotomy in the adult hip for treatment of hip arthritis.
Duke University Medical Center offers exposure to both acute orthopaedic injury and a referral practice of complex post-traumatic conditions. The fellow participates as part of the orthopaedic trauma team, and will be expected to participate in resident education.
An opportunity for basic science research is also available, with an emphasis in research in hip mechanics and post-traumatic arthritis.
Graduating fellows of the Duke Orthopaedic Trauma program will become part of the prestigious Piedmont Orthopedic Society. Induction into this group of life-long learners includes access to an annual meeting and alumni reunions at events such as the AAOS annual meeting, and the annual meeting of the Piedmont Society.
