Overview, Philosophy, and History

Stern hand surgery teaching

Our program is a one-year fellowship, sponsored by the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, and TriHealth/Beacon Hand Surgery Specialists for residents seeking certification in hand and microsurgery. Established in 1987 by Peter J. Stern, MD, it underscores his strong commitment to education which is shared by the faculty involved in this program.

The Mary S. Stern Hand and Microsurgery Fellowship Program is designed to prepare the orthopaedic and/or plastic surgeon for a career in clinical hand surgery and all of its aspects including acute adult and pediatric trauma, reconstruction, arthritis, congenital, and microvascular surgery (including brachial plexus). It is our philosophy to teach not just “how”, but also “why” of hand surgery as we strongly believe that learning the art of diagnosis and non-surgical management are as important as mastering surgical techniques. Further history of the fellowship program can be found here.
