Joseph H. Boyes Hand Fellowship

The hand is one of the most complex parts of the body and a hallmark of what makes us human. Watch the video above and learn about the fascinating history of hand surgery, hear an inspiring patient story and find out more about the Joseph H. Boyes Hand Fellowship.

Description

The Boyes Hand Surgery Fellowship offers a truly comprehensive training experience in all aspects of hand surgery. The fellowship is based at Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center and Keck Hospital of USC. A close relationship with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles increases exposure to congenital problems.

Fellows gain extensive experience in trauma, microvascular, congenital, rheumatoid problems, and burns. A microsurgical laboratory allows fellows to practice supervised microsurgical techniques. A rotation dedicated to shoulder and elbow surgery is included.

Weekly conferences include a lecture presentation, review of journals and case presentations. A visiting guest speaker lectures monthly.

Each fellow is required to complete at least one scientific paper suitable for publication in a major journal and presentation at a national meeting.

The fellowship is open to board-eligible orthopaedic, plastic or general surgeons. A valid California medical license is required.
