The Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Fellowship at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is a one-year, ACGME-approved program that admits one fellow per year.
The primary goal of the Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Fellowship is to provide the fellow with the educational experience that maximizes the opportunity to understand, evaluate and treat orthopaedic foot and ankle conditions. We are also committed to preparing the fellow for participation in quality research and education of residents, interns and medical students.
This is achieved by combining a structured study program utilizing extensive recommended reading lists with the clinical experience that has an appropriate balance between office evaluation and surgical treatment of foot and ankle related conditions.
The fellow will conduct foot and ankle journal club, provide lectures to the residents, present grand rounds, attend required conferences and participate in research in the Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation. The fellow will be expected to produce and complete at least one scholarly project suitable for publication during the fellowship year.
The fellow is also exposed to a balanced educational experience with three foot and ankle attending physicians and has the option for additional participation in trauma and pediatrics.
Applicants for the Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Fellowship must be board-eligible in orthopaedic surgery and have completed an ACGME-accredited MD residency or ACGME-accredited osteopathic residency in orthopaedic surgery.
