Residency & Fellowship
As professors at the University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, we train future orthopaedic surgeons and sports medicine physicians. As a patient, you may see residents and fellows in our clinical offices, all residents and fellows are supervised by our attending physicians.
The Department of Orthopaedics is a nationally ranked program that educates and inspires tomorrow’s leaders in orthopaedic surgery, excels in research innovation and provides high-caliber health care. Consisting of 30+ clinicians and researchers, we proudly train talented individuals through our residency and subspecialty fellowship training programs.
Orthopedic surgeons all complete five years of residency training after medical school. If they choose to, they can apply for and spend an additional year training intensively in a subspecialty such as joint reconstruction, spine, pediatric orthopaedics, shoulder and elbow, orthopaedic sports medicine, foot and ankle, trauma, tumor or hand and upper extremity. This year of fellowship training under experts in their chosen subspecialty deepens their expertise and prepares them to deal with more complicated cases.
Expertise is Everything
For over 35 years, UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine has had a fellowship-trained surgeon in every subspecialty of orthopaedic medicine. In fact, our doctors currently train fellows in hand and upper extremity, joint reconstruction and sports medicine. Whether you’re a medical student or patient, the expertise of the team at UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine can help you to be your best.
