The goal of the University of Florida, Department of Orthopaedics, Orthopaedic Trauma Fellowship is to make substantial advancements in the clinical skills and judgment of the fellow during the one year clinical experience. The fellow develops expertise in the management of trauma and fracture patients. Surgical Skills and decision-making will be developed in methods of treatment ranging from external and internal fixation to minimally invasive surgery. There will be exposure to all aspects of the comprehensive approach to pre- and post-operative care and to rehabilitation. Acute management of complex articular and periarticular fractures is covered. Posttraumatic management of nonunions, malunions, limb length discrepancies and osteomyelitis is also addressed. We expect significant growth in the skills for management of polytraumatized patients and periarticular fractures. The fellow will have the opportunity throughout the fellowship to advance their skills and judgment in revision fracture surgery and management of periprosthetic fractures. An exceptional educational component of this fellowship program is that there will be a special emphasis on patient centered care and the fellow will participate in division specific quality projects.
