The one-year fellowship includes training in:
- Congenital and developmental abnormalities of the spine, upper, and lower extremities
- Genetic and metabolic disorders, including osteogenesis imperfecta
- Brachial plexus and upper extremity congenital and acquired abnormalities
- Limb-length discrepancy and deformity
- Limb deficiencies and prosthetic management

Additional emphasis is placed on all aspects of pediatric orthopedic trauma.
During this one-year fellowship, three fellows will spend time rotating through Texas Children’s Hospital and Shriners Hospital for Children. The faculty consists of over 30 full-time pediatric orthopedists involved in all areas of care.
We offer Grand Rounds, journal club, preoperative conferences and didactic lectures. Completion of at least one clinical research project leading to manuscript publication in a peer-reviewed orthopedics journal is required. Two projects are strongly encouraged.
