Fellowship Description

The ACGME-accredited Cleveland Combined Hand Fellowship was created over 25 years ago. This one-year fellowship is a joint venture of two longstanding Cleveland institutions: Cleveland Clinic and MetroHealth Medical Center and typically accepts 2-3 fellows per year. Both teaching sites are dynamic academic centers, dedicated to education, research and patient care. Metro Health Medical Center is a Class I trauma center and Cleveland Clinic is an international referral center. Through these two institutions, there is large and varied clinical exposure.

Fellows spend six months at each of the two institutions, working with both orthopaedic and plastic surgeons. They are free to move between institutions during their six month sessions in order to participate in rare or particularly interesting cases or conferences. There is elective time for research, other elbow/hand or shoulder rotations with world-renowned shoulder surgeons.

Fellow on-call schedule is at a Junior Staff Level with in-house resident support and faculty supervision. The program provides exposure to all aspects of hand and upper extremity surgery, including arthritis, tumor, congenital deformities, microsurgery and trauma reconstruction. Fellows participate in a one-week microvascular laboratory course and have laboratory availability to maintain their skills. There are ample opportunities for anatomical dissection laboratory research. With protected-time, Fellows complete either a clinical or laboratory project by the end of the fellowship year.

Applicants must have a MD or DO degree from an appropriately accredited US or Canadian medical school or must have graduated from an international school and possess valid ECFMG certification.

If you have any questions or need more information regarding the fellowship, please contact us. We appreciate your interest in our fellowship program and look forward to receiving your application.
