Pediatric Orthopedic Fellowship

Boston Children's Orthopedic Center offers three fellowship positions each academic year for specialty training in pediatric orthopedic surgery.

With maximum exposure in the areas of congenital deformities, growth disorders, spinal surgery, neuromuscular disease, and trauma, each fellow will spend six months on each of the orthopedic surgical teams within the department. There is also significant exposure in subspecialty areas of pediatric orthopedic surgery in hand and upper extremity, sports medicine and tumors.

Fellows gain a broad experience in both operative and non-operative treatment of pediatric orthopedic conditions. Laboratory and clinical research is available and supported by the department. Fellows are responsible for completing at least one research project during their time at Children's.

The entire fellowship experience is on the main campus of Boston Children's Hospital without rotation to affiliated hospitals. An academic appointment for fellows is through Harvard Medical School.

Lecture Schedule

The lecture schedule for both residency and fellowship programs includes:

  • Basic science conferences
  • Clinical pediatric orthopedic conferences
  • Fellows' case conference
  • Journal Club
  • Chief's conference for case presentation
  • Fracture conference
  • Indication conference

Beginning in September 2009, the Pediatric Orthopedic Fellowship Program will participate in the San Francisco Matching Program (SFMP) for fellowships starting in August of 2011. For complete details on requirements and the application process, visit the San Francisco Matching Program website.
