Clinical Fellowship

The primary goal of the Hip & Knee Reconstruction Fellowship at the University of Florida, Gainesville is to train arthroplasty surgeons who are highly competent with routine and complex arthroplasty procedures. There is a very strong clinical emphasis and a comprehensive approach to patient care in both inpatient and outpatient environments. Our fellows are trained through extensive hands on surgical experience, direct patient care and mentorship from 6 fellowship trained arthroplasty surgeons. There is a high volume of routine and complex surgical cases and the fellow is critical to and very involved in these cases. There will be extensive opportunity to teach and supervise residents and medical students. There are regularly scheduled journal clubs, case based conferences and lectures in addition to continuous bedside teaching and case discussions. Our fellows are expected to develop academically as well as clinically. The program structure &  curriculum emphasizes conceptual thinking, evidence based techniques and  the most current literature. Participation in research is an important part of this program and fellows will have adequate time for research and adequate support through the research division of our department which consists of full time research faculty, research labs and extensive resources. Our faculty consider our fellows as colleagues and wish them to succeed and will provide mentorship and support during training, and throughout their careers.
