The spine surgery fellowship program consists of four 3-month blocks with two teams. Each team includes the fellow, an outside rotating resident from Henry Ford Hospital, a Beaumont resident, and the spine faculty.
The educational program, through faculty interaction, didactic lectures, conferences and outpatient clinics, emphasizes basic science, diagnosis, pathogenesis, operative and non-operative decision making, along with results and complications of all treatments.
The outpatient component of the program is held at the Beaumont Orthopaedic Center.
The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery fully supports the attendance of the fellow at one national meeting during the fellowship. Those annual meetings to choose from are: American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Cervical Spine Research Society, North American Spine Society, Scoliosis Research Society, and the International Society for the Study of the Lumbar Spine (if held within the United States).
The hospital also sponsors education in E&M coding, ethics, ACLS, and medicolegal issues.
