Goals and characteristics
The Paediatric Orthopaedic Fellowship at the University of British Columbia
is a one-year program based at British Columbia Children's Hospital.
The goals are to perfect tertiary level skills in the management of
paediatric orthopaedic problems. The program has an active outpatient
load of 14,000 visits per year with daily operating room activities.
We are the major trauma center for children for the province. The Fellow
will be incorporated in the ongoing training program based at Children's
Hospital and will be expected to participate in this program. Ample
opportunity is provided for clinical and basic research. Successful
completion of an approved residency program in orthopaedic surgery is
required for an institutional license within the teaching institution.
The Department of Orthopaedics at the University of
British Columbia also offers an academic paediatric orthopaedic fellowship
which is 2 years in length. The clinical portion of the fellowship comprises
80% of the Fellow's activities in the first year and 20% in the second.
The academic activities comprise 20% in the first year and 80% in the
second year. At the conclusion of the second year, and on receipt of
the thesis, the Fellow will be granted a Masters Degree in Surgery from
the University. The areas of academic pursuit that are available include
epidemiology and biomechanics, as well as molecular and growth biology.
The aim of the academic fellowship is to equip the graduate with the
resources necessary to enter academic practice.
