Description

The Joint Arthroplasty Fellowship is a one-year clinical fellowship with the goal of developing well-rounded hip and knee arthroplasty surgeons and academic leaders. Our goal is to offer fellows clinical experience in the operative and nonoperative management of arthritis of the hip and knee using conservative treatment and state-of-the-art surgery. The fellow will gain outstanding exposure to techniques in arthritis surgery in a high-volume, fast-paced practice.

Practice management and research are also emphasized in this fellowship. Our goal is to train surgeons who can provide care of the hip and knee joint both conservatively and surgically.

Applying for the Arthoplasty Fellowship

We participate in the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) Fellowship Match Program. Applications must be submitted through the San Francisco Matching Program (SF Match). The application deadline is in November each year, with interviews scheduled between December and February.

Successful completion of an orthopedic residency and a California State medical license are required. This fellowship is non-ACGME accredited.
