The Hand Fellowship program at Wake Forest School of Medicine prepares fellows for a career as a clinical or academic surgeon. In this program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, fellows will learn to treat complex disorders of the hand—affecting everything from the brachial plexus to the fingertips.
Why Train at Wake Forest?
All fellowship faculty have advanced training in hand and shoulder/elbow and perform all aspects of upper extremity surgery, including shoulder trauma, arthroplasty, reconstruction and arthroscopy.
We also provide the traditional hand curriculum, with excellent and broad exposure to trauma, reconstruction and microsurgery.
The fellowship is designed to provide a complete experience in upper extremity problems. At the completion of the fellowship, you should be competent in treating congenital and acquired disorders in either a private practice or academic setting.
