Goals & Characteristics

Effective July 1, 2015, we will be under the governance of the Orthopaedic Trauma Association and no longer under the governance of the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education. The one-year program accepts one fellow per year and runs from August 1 to July 30.

The fellow will work at Miami Valley Hospital, the only Level I trauma center in the Dayton, Ohio, region. In addition to the clinical (emergency room, floor, and private office) and operative responsibilities, the fellow will actively participate in the Orthopaedic Medical/Surgical Clinic—General/Fracture Division on Tuesday mornings. All duty hour restrictions are to be followed.

The fellow will gain experience with the full spectrum of isolated and polytraumatic conditions in the adult population. The primary focus will be on injuries of the appendicular skeleton, along with pelvic and acetabular injuries. Hand and spine injuries are covered by separate services. Additional experience will involve the evaluation and treatment of traumatic soft tissue injury, as well as chronic post-traumatic conditions (malunion, nonunion and infections). The fellow will participate in the initial evaluation, examination and diagnostic workup to develop diagnoses and treatment plans (both operative and nonoperative). 

The deadline for applying for 2016-2017 is Dec. 1, 2014. To be eligible, applicants should have completed a residency in orthopaedic surgery prior to entering the program. This fellowship participates in the San Francisco match program.

Fellows will receive a stipend of $63,400 per year plus benefits. In addition to a two-week vacation allowance, fellows may attend the following CME courses, some of which are subject to grant funding availability:

  • Orthopaedic Trauma Association: three working days
  • American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons: three working days
  • Taylor Spatial Frame training: two working days
  • Stryker Pelvic Fellows Course: three working days
  • Boston Fellow Course: three working days
  • AO Fellows Course: three working days
