The trauma surgery fellowship program offers a single, 12-month fellowship. Based out of Alabama's only ACS certified level I trauma center, this training program offers fellows a broad experience with pelvic/acetabular fracture, periarticular reconstruction, and management of poly-traumatized patients. Working with 4 fellowship-trained mentors, fellows will also have ample opportunity to evaluate and treat patients with nonunions and malunions, using multiple reconstructive techniques including the Ilizarov method.
Orthopaedic trauma fellows spend 4 three-month block rotations with each faculty. This academic schedule gives fellows an average of three days in the OR, one day in clinic and one administrative day each week. In addition, fellows attend weekly fracture conference, grand rounds, and are asked to complete one publishable research project prior to graduation. During their time at UAB fellows will enjoy a process of graduated autonomy in both the OR and clinic.
