Allegheny Health NetworkGregory T. Altman, MD1307 Federal Street, 2nd FloorPittsburgh, PAChris PilarskiChris.Pilarski@ahn.orgGregory.Altman@ahn.org(412) 359-42121. The program will be designed to allow an excellent clinical experience, to developing surgical skills and pre- and postoperative patient care. The surgical experience will be approximately 3½ - 4 days per week with a fellowship-trained orthopaedic trauma surgeon. There will be one day per week of coordinating pre- and postoperative care in the clinic. Additionally, at least one half day per week will be allotted for research. 2. The Fellow will rotate with four fellowship-trained traumatologists. In addition, there will be an opportunity to work with two pediatric orthopaedic surgeons to gain additional fracture exposure in pediatric trauma. 3. Additionally, the Fellow will have the opportunity to participate in spinal trauma cases, but this will not be required. It is required that the fellow understand the complexities of the spine-injured orthopaedic patient and appropriate coordinated management with the spine service. 4. Along with four orthopaedic trauma fellowship-trained surgeons, there will be opportunities to operate with orthopaedic hand surgeons to gain additional experience and understanding of neurovascular injuries and hand trauma. 5. The Fellow will take approximately five calls per month as the primary attending orthopaedic surgeon. Backup will be provided by a member of the Orthopaedic Trauma Team. This will provide the Fellow with the opportunity to initially manage and coordinate patient care. Any cases performed will be limited to emergencies only, and each case will be reviewed with the back-up orthopaedic trauma surgeon on-call. There will be graduated responsibilities. There is at least one but usually two dedicated orthopaedic trauma rooms seven days per week at 7:00 a.m., lessening the burden for nighttime surgery. 6. During the Fellowship, the Fellow will be exposed and supervised for all key portions of the following procedures. It is anticipated that the Fellow will gain surgical expertise and be qualified to perform these procedures after the completion of the Fellowship: a. Open reduction internal fixation of pelvic and acetabular fractures. b. Repair of complex nonunions, malunions, and delayed unions. c. Bone transport procedures and corrective osteotomies. d. Management of the polytraumatized patient including prioritized care, coordinating care with consultants, and functioning as a member of the overall trauma team. 7. The Orthopaedic Trauma Service is well established at our institution and has had longstanding interdisciplinary relationships with the General Surgical Trauma Team, Neurosurgery, Critical Care, Plastic Surgery, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. The Fellows will regularly communicate with other services and be exposed to the principles of severe soft tissue injuries both with our Orthopaedic Trauma Service and with our Plastic Surgery Service. The Plastic Surgery Service will coordinate care of the patient requiring complex reconstructive procedures such as flap coverage, and the Fellow will have the opportunity to participate in these cases. 201 yearOTA65Level 1 ACS Trauma Center 285049910065137111www.ahn.org

Cooper University Hospital/Cooper Med. School of Rowan Univ.Rakesh P. Mashru, M.D.3 Cooper Plaza, Suite 408Camden, New JerseyBrittney FarrellFarrell-Brittney@cooperhealth.eduMashru-Rakesh@cooperhealth.edu856-963-3670The Trauma Center at Cooper University Hospital was established in 1982 and is one of only three New Jersey State-Designated Level I Trauma Centers verified by the American College of Surgeons, the highest national recognition possible. Cooper serves as the regional Trauma Center for southern New Jersey and is the only hospital in the Delaware Valley that provides trauma care for both adults and children. Our Trauma Center cares for severely injured patients involved in motor vehicle crashes, falls, industrial accidents and acts of violence. While a member Cooper’s Orthopaedic Trauma team, a vital component of caring for patients with traumatic injuries, you will have the opportunity to experience a blend of trauma that is both complex and more routine. You will frequently be asked to demonstrate independent clinical judgement and you should expect to function within a certain degree of autonomy. At Cooper, we understand that the practice of Orthopaedic Trauma relies heavily on a multidisciplinary approach to patient care, necessary to achieve the best clinical outcomes. You will learn that achieving comprehensive, progressive care requires a large effort on the part of many specialties to get our patients and their families through this very difficult time. This team approach necessitates all clinical staff working collectively, throughout the hospital, in a collegial and collaborative fashion. We hope you will do your part to make our service the best in the country. Thank you for your interest in the Cooper Orthopaedic Trauma Fellowship Program! 112021-2022OTA154Level 1 ACS Trauma Center 312237486861819http://www.cooperhealth.edu/fellowships/orthopaedic-trauma

Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeons of Northern CaliforniaPaul Gregory, M.D.6620 Coyle Avenue, Suite 212Carmichael, CAPat Jonesotspat@gmail.compaulgregoryjr@yahoo.com(916) 536-9455The purpose of the fellowship program is to advance the fellow’s knowledge, skills and clinical acumen to a level well beyond what can be achieved during the course of a traditional orthopaedic residency. In so doing, the fellowship is meant to be the keystone in the fellow’s orthopaedic education. The experience prepares him to immediately enter orthopaedic trauma practice comfortable in all respects that he can provide appropriate care for his patients and conduct his practice successfully. While learning facts and accumulating knowledge, as is done in residency, is an important beginning, possessing the wisdom to apply this effectively in the clinical setting comes with time and experience. A one-year fellowship experience in our program is intended to advance the fellow several years further in achieving such wisdom. Furthermore, the fellowship is intended to offer perspective and allow the fellow to be appropriately discriminatory. While new and innovative techniques are often seen as preferred, many don’t stand the test of time. The fellowship experience will allow the graduate to recognize and deal with such issues for the betterment of his approach to patient care. Goals The fellowship will be an advanced apprenticeship in the care of patients with musculoskeletal injuries of the extremities and pelvis. The primary goal of the experience is to advance the fellow closer to achieving expertise in caring for patients with musculoskeletal injuries. Our fellows are taught that they are physicians first, orthopaedic surgeons second and traumatologists third. Optimal patient outcome and overall patient satisfaction is the goal of treating our patients and is the goal of the fellowship. All fellows enter the program after successful completion of an accredited residency program. The fellowship is designed to advance their knowledge, judgment, and technical skills well beyond that of a general orthopaedic surgeon. Although didactic learning and studying literature is clearly of value, these experiences alone will not as effectively advance the fellow toward expertise as will one-on-one apprenticeship with experienced attending faculty. Therefore, the fellowship is designed to immerse the fellow in a high-volume trauma setting with close, daily interaction and exposure to seasoned surgeons who are passionate about treating their trauma patients effectively. Specific goals include furthering knowledge of musculoskeletal injuries, understanding treatment decision making, developing surgical technical skills, and evaluating techniques of research into musculoskeletal injuries. The fellow will be introduced to new techniques of care as well as being given ample opportunity to apply techniques that are well established. They will be taught to be highly discriminatory in applying new technology that is not well supported by clinical experience. In addition, the fellowship will introduce and educate the fellow in the experience of managing and administering a busy trauma service in a busy trauma hospital. This will include interaction with other medical services, hospital administration, and ancillary help within the orthopaedic service, including the outpatient clinic setting. The fellow will have ample time in the follow up of musculoskeletal injuries to develop a degree of judgement in managing patients postoperatively. Finally, through his interaction in the private office that is part of our program, he will gain insight into the business of orthopaedics as it relates to hospitals, third party payers and patients. 111 yearOTA33Level 2 Trauma Center2200433252840otsnc.org

Penn State University, College of MedicineJ. Spence Reid, MD500 University Dr. H089Hershey, PennsylvaniaLynne Hamannlhamann1@pennstatehealth.psu.edujreid@pennstatehealth.psu.edu(717) 531-4833The Hershey Medical Center is the tertiary referral center for Level I trauma (both adult and pediatric) in the south central region of Pennsylvania. Our trauma population is 96% blunt – and the penetrating trauma is usually high energy hunting injuries. Three full time helicopters are positioned throughout the region for the transport of injured patients. An extensive referral network for pelvis and acetabular fractures as well as complex periarticular fractures and nonunions has been established extending through the entire central corridor of Pennsylvania. Trauma exists as a separate division within the department of orthopedics. The two senior members of the trauma faculty have a combined 45 years of clinical experience, and have been recognized within the institution for excellence in teaching. The senior faculty members are on the AO teaching faculty and Dr. Reid is also on the teaching faculty for the Ilizarov and Spatial frame techniques. Only one fellow will be accepted per year – yielding a very rich clinical experience in surgery of the pelvis and acetabulum / difficult periarticular and long bone fractures and post-traumatic fracture and infection problems. We are a core center for the department of defense sponsored METRC consortium (Major Extremity Trauma Research Consortium) Extensive resources have been allocated for orthopedic trauma care at the Hershey Medical Center. The division has two dedicated operating rooms per day (with C-arms) and orthopedic specific OR personnel in which to place urgent and elective cases. This flexibility allows non-urgent call cases to be easily scheduled when appropriate. The focus of this fellowship from the faculty perspective is teaching and clinical competency. There is a 3 hour weekly conference in which all pre and post operative cases of the entire trauma division for the week are reviewed and discussed. An additional monthly journal club provides opportunity for review and discussion of current literature. An extensive and well-funded orthopedic basic science laboratory is housed on the same floor as the trauma division. Biomechanical studies can be designed and executed with the aid of a Ph.D. biomechanical engineer. The fellow is expected to become involved in either an ongoing or original clinical or basic science research project during the year and produce a paper of publishable quality upon completion. To this end, a fracture and trauma database is in place and ongoing. The division of orthopedic trauma employs a full time research assistant to facilitate the initiation and execution of clinical studies via IRB preparation and database management. Protected time for the trauma fellow to engage in research activities is integrated in the schedule. The Hershey area is relatively uncongested with a low cost of living. Most of the faculty live within 5 miles of the medical center. The town supports an impressive concert schedule and theater program (Hershey Theater). Outdoor activities such as road and mountain bike riding, running, fishing, hunting, and camping are abundant. New York and Philadelphia are easy to access via train or car. Baltimore and Washington are 1.5 and 2.5 hours away by car. This fellowship is intended to prepare an orthopedic surgeon for a career at a level one trauma center, either university or community based. A significant level of experience and understanding of orthopedic trauma care is expected to have been achieved at the residency level. This fellowship is not intended to “round out” the clinical experience of a surgeon who was exposed to minimal trauma training as an orthopedic resident. Current research: 1. Genomics of Nonunions (OTA funded) 2. Biomechanics of Periprosthetic Fracture Fixation (industry funded) 3. FIXIT, PAIN, VANCO, STREAM studies as part of METRC consortium 4.

Reno Orthopaedic Trauma FellowshipTimothy J. Bray, MD555 North Arlington AveReno, NVSara DePaolisdepaoli@renoortho.combray@renoortho.com775-785-3416One year clinical Fellowship in orthopaedic trauma which combines acute fracture care, delayed reconstruction, post traumatic deformity, arthroplasty and business education. This is currently the only trauma fellowship in the United States that provides a formal business educational program in addition to high volume clinical training. Our fellows average over 1000 cases per year; 2.5 times greater than the OTA requirements while working with three fellowship-trained orthopaedic trauma surgeons in a community-based trauma system. Because there are no residents at our facility, there is no competition for cases. Business education involves a core curriculum with hospital and practice administrators to instill the successful business management principles of large group practices and the financial considerations of hospital trauma systems. This comprehensive educational experience provides the fellow with a unique opportunity to learn the clinical, surgical, and business skills necessary to navigate the political, bureaucratic, and financial obstacles present in both private and academic practices. Combined with a robust and active research program that produces multiple publications per year, we feel this is one of the most well-rounded fellowship opportunities offering a diverse educational experience not found anywhere else. 101 yearOTA444Level 2 Trauma Center375410087899www.moreortho.org

The intricacies of this include, but are not limited to, how injuries affect the overall well-being of the patient and their subsequent function. Additionally, we hope to stimulate an understanding of how treatment of multiply-injured patients in a critical care setting has varying outcomes and that timing and titration of our interventions are critical in their recovery. We will strive to impart an understanding of how to anticipate and manage complications that may arise in the treatment of traumatic injuries. By encouraging a basic fund of knowledge, imparting several principles of treatment, and honing a special set of surgical skills, we will train the next generation of capable and competent orthopaedic trauma surgeons. 101 yearOTA633Level 2 Trauma Center260080057842325www.orthotfo.com
