Pediatric Orthopaedic Fellowship Update

Pediatric Orthopaedic Update | Winter 2021
By Justin Mistovich, MD, Program Director, Pediatric Orthopaedic Fellowship
We are very excited about the continued growth and interest in our Pediatric Orthopaedic Fellowship, which is now POSNA-accredited. One of the unique aspects of our current curriculum is its hybrid design. The first six months are spent rotating on specific services, followed by 6 months of the fellow tailoring their experiences to their individual future needs. This allows fellows to develop deep expertise in their specific area of interest with our surgeons both at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital the region’s only level I pediatric trauma center, as well as MetroHealth Medical Center. Fellows have a robust clinical and operative experience, with our faculty performing nearly 1,000 cases annually, and over 12,000 outpatient clinical visits. Additionally, we have structured the schedule to contain protected research time, allowing our fellows to take advantage of both our multicenter study groups as well as unique institutional resources to fully develop into surgeon scientists.
Despite the challenges of virtual interviews as a result of COVID-19, interest from senior residents in our program continues to grow. We have a full schedule of applicants signed up for interviews this year for our 2022 fellowship position in the match.
Our current fellow, Philip Hanna, MD, came to us from Boston, where he had served as a Research Fellow at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, as well as an Instructor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School. In addition to his clinical service, Philip is leading a project to develop a database of adolescents with shoulder instability.
