|Spine Surgery Fellowship|
The one-year orthopedic spine fellowship is an outstanding opportunity for a qualified orthopedic surgeon to train in diagnosis and management of disorders involving the entire spine. The fellowship emphasizes understanding the natural history of various spinal disorders, while including extensive hands on experience in minimally invasive, technologically advanced anterior and posterior spine surgery. The combined patients of our full-time spine surgeons will provide the fellow with ample exposure to all areas of spine pathology including trauma, tumors, infection, deformity and degenerative problems of the spine, and spinal instrumentation. The surgical experience includes approximately 900 spine cases per year.
Along with the clinical responsibilities, the Fellow is expected to participate in ongoing, as well as original, clinical and/or basic science research projects. The subjects for the research will be determined early on in the fellowship. A full research staff is available to assist the surgeons and fellows in coordinating research projects.
Applicants must have successfully completed an orthopedic or neurological residency and be board certified prior to the fellowship. Foreign candidates must have passed the ECFMG and FLEX examinations. All fellows must obtain a New York state medical license.
We participate with the Spine Surgery Fellowship Match (SFM) sponsored by the North American Spine Society (NASS). Please go to www.sfmatch.org to learn more about the match process. We are listed under 'Spine Institute of New York at Beth Israel'
