The Holland Orthopaedic and Arthritic Centre is the largest volume arthroplasty centre in Canada. Fellows will gain exposure to all aspects of reconstructive surgery: primary and revision arthroplasty including minimally invasive techniques. Current volume is 2100 cases per year. This is a stand-alone Orthopaedic Unit without an Emergency Room. Additional trauma experience can be available through the Sunnybrook campus of the hospital. Clinical research opportunities are available.


The goal of the fellowship is to provide post-graduate trainees the opportunity to acquire assessments skills and surgical techniques to manage the full range of lower limb reconstructive surgery at the hip and the knee including revision surgery and management of infections.


By the end of the fellowship program the fellow will be able to perform complex primary and revision arthroplasties of the hip and knee.


The fellows responsibilities include clinical care for patients, documentation of the inpatient stay and involvement in at least 1 research project. Approximately 2 days per week will be spent in the operating room and one day in the clinic. Clinical care of patients at this site requires in-house call of one night per week. Weekend call is available and is remunerated in addition to fellow stipend. We require that all fellows are ACLS certified and will provide training if necessary.


Friday 7.30-8.30 a.m. Fellows are expected to present rounds once every 6 months.

Arthroplasty Planning Rounds: Thursday 7 a.m.


Teaching is an integral part of the education program at the Holland Centre. Fellows are expected to assist in teaching residents and students.


There are opportunities to perform research projects in clinical areas at the centre. Fellows are expected to complete at least 1 research project during their fellowship.


Fellows are entitled to 4 weeks of vacation per year and 1 week to attend academic meetings. All requests for leave must be submitted in writing to Diana Brierley at least four weeks in advance.


An interview is required.
