Education & Training
We pride ourselves on our commitment to education, viewing the role of the fellow as a junior colleague we are mentoring for long-term career success. Your experience is custom-tailored to your unique long-term professional goals, while still providing you with the complete range of experiences in pediatric orthopedic surgery. This will allow you to develop your own area of interest yet make you widely qualified for any specific need in a potential job, as well as provide you with the critical thinking skills to understand the complexity of treatment indications for pediatric orthopedic surgery.
The educational experience and mentorship does not end after the fellowship year. By joining the UH Rainbow family, regardless of where your career takes you, our team in Cleveland will continue to provide support with challenging cases and career development.
