Adult Reconstruction Fellowship

Hospital for Special Surgery is proud to continue an over century’s old tradition of postgraduate training programs including our Orthopaedic Surgery Residency program.

A clinical fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery requires the USMLE exams, and positions for American residents are filled as part of the match program. International surgeons are encouraged to apply directly to the fellowship director.

Research Fellowship

Every year one or two international fellows perform research with Dr. Boettner. Usually this will allow them to participate in a number of clinical and basic science research projects to help their research career at home. This is a great opportunity to get to know the US system and write the necessary research papers needed for your research career in your home institution. Over the years we have developed into a group of surgeons that collaborate on clinical and research projects. Our research fellows:
