About the Fellowship Program

The Orthopaedic Trauma Fellowship offered through the UCMC (University of Cincinnati Medical Center) is a one-year intensive experience for orthopaedic surgeons interested in pursuing Academic Careers in Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery, hoping to gain expertise in managing complex fractures in patients with multi-system injuries. UCMC is a regional level-one referral trauma center, staffed by six fellowship trained full-time trauma surgeons covering Southern Ohio, Eastern Indiana, Northern Kentucky and Western West Virginia. The UCMC Trauma Service is a regional referral center for the treatment of musculoskeletal trauma involving the extremities and pelvis/acetabulum. The UCMC Trauma Service is also a regional referral center for the sequelae of musculoskeletal trauma, treating a large volume of non-unions, osteomyelitis, bone loss and deformity. The fellow will gain expertise in managing soft-tissue trauma and reconstruction of soft-tissue defects in concert with our reconstructive plastic surgeons to become proficient in local/regional flap applications.
