Fellowship programs

Orthopaedic Hand Fellowship

Applications are now being accepted for a one-year fellowship position in Orthopaedic Hand Surgery. The fellowship is under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Isaacs but time will be spent with several hand and upper extremity surgeons. The fellowship is designed to offer a broad exposure to all facets of hand surgery but can be tailored towards individual interests to include increased exposure to complex shoulder and elbow trauma and reconstruction, burn surgery, or peripheral nerve and brachial plexus. The fellow will experience a variety of surgeries ranging from routine hand and wrist surgery to complex trauma and extremity reconstruction. Microsurgical exposure will include training in the microsurgery lab, free tissue transfers, replants/revascularization procedures, and nerve surgery. Fellows will have ample clinical exposure as well. Fellows will be involved in at least one research project and expected to complete at least one additional academic endeavor (review article, case report, chapter, etc.). Though VCU Orthopaedics endorses an "active learning" environment, regular didactic lessons will be an integral part of the fellowship as well. Applicants must be Board eligible and able to obtain medical licensure in the state of Virginia.
