Our faculty are academically engaged, and enjoy mentoring our fellows through research projects. Each fellow is expected to complete at least one research project. Our schedule does allow for dedicated research time. Rainbow has excellent research support and resources that simply do not exist elsewhere.
We hold the largest single-center prospectively collected pediatric spinal deformity database, and have access to the Hamann-Todd Osteological Collection, along with the Bolton-Brush Growth Study Center, from which the Greulich and Pyle Atlas was developed. Our sports service has been instrumental in the establishment of several large multicenter databases and prospective studies, including the study of tibial spine fractures, ACL tears, and shoulder instability. Our surgeons have also established multicenter databases and studies for our limb deformity and neuromuscular conditions.
We encourage our fellows to present their projects at national and international meetings.
