Lahey Hospital & Medical Center's Hand Surgery Fellowship is a one-year ACGME-accredited training program in hand and upper extremity surgery. Our faculty of five CAQ-certified hand surgeons offer a broad clinical experience from shoulder to fingertips.
Our facilities include Lahey Medical Center, Peabody with a high-volume of routine cases, as well as Lahey Hospital & Medical Center's Level II trauma center which provides tertiary and inpatient care to a large surrounding area. Trainees at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center include one hand fellow, four orthopaedic surgery residents from Boston University (one on the hand rotation), and medical students from Tufts University School of Medicine. Didactics include weekly conferences in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery (Grand Rounds, Mortality & Morbidity, Journal Club, Case Conference), monthly combined hand conferences including the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Plastic Surgery, and additional conferences at Boston University School of Medicine held by the Lahey Hospital & Medical Center and B.U. hand faculty. Resources include the Cattell Memorial Library at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, online access to the Tufts University Hirsh Health Sciences Library, and laboratories for microsurgery and arthroscopy. Involvement in research is expected and facilitated by the faculty, with protected time provided.
Applications must include the Universal Hand Surgery Fellowship Application, cover letter, curriculum vitae, USMLE transcript, and three letters of recommendation.
