The purpose of the fellowship program is to provide a broad exposure to all aspects of hip and knee surgery. This includes arthroscopy, primary arthroplasty and revision arthroplasty. At the UHN, we do more than a 1000 joint replacements a year. There is also an active community trauma program, which provides fracture care to our local community.

Two fellows will be assigned to each staff person for 2 or 4 months. They will be involved in the clinical activities of that staff person including seeing office patients, running the fracture clinic and assisting in the operating room.

Fellows are required to provide on call coverage and one fellow will be on call whenever an arthroplasty surgeon is on call.

The UHN is a pioneer in many areas of information technology in medicine. All order entry and record management is electronic. Proficiency in computer use will be an asset for the fellow. All fellows will undergo training, at the UHN, for its information management system and will be expected to use this skill in daily clinical work.

There is ample opportunity for research and fellow involvement in a research project is expected. The areas of research include epidemiology, outcomes measures in arthroplasty and orthopedic education. If fellows want to pursue basic sciences research, there are opportunities to do so through our sister institutions including St. Michael’s Hospital.
