The Orthopedic Fellowship Program at The CORE Institute, under the direction of Jason Scalise, M.D., offers fellows exposure to the large volume and variety of orthopedic surgical problems. Clinical experience and academic research activities are offered in a rotating format throughout various clinic locations and supervising physicians.
Candidates for The CORE Institute Orthopedic Fellowship Program are expected to have completed a residency in Orthopedic Surgery in the United States. During the year-long program, fellows can expect to perform pre-operative consultations and participate actively in surgical procedures, as well as in the postoperative management of patients, in both hospital and outpatient settings.
Interested candidates may apply by sending their CV, including a personal statement, recent photo, and three letters of recommendation.
