Hand & Upper Extremity Fellowship

Our Post-Residency Fellowship Program

Hand & Upper Extremity Fellowship Faculty and Fellows

The Hand and Upper Extremity Fellowship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is a one-year Harvard-affiliated ACGME-accredited post-residency training program. The fellowship is a cooperative effort between the Orthopedic and Plastic Surgery departments with residents from each department forming an integral part of the service.

As part of the fellowship experience, fellows have the opportunity to work with faculty in numerous clinical settings from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC, Level 1 trauma), Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham (BID Needham), Boston Children's Hospital (BCH), Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates (HVMA), Mount Auburn Hospital (MAH), and Shields Ambulatory Surgery Centers. The fellowship offers a combined and complementary experience with time evenly divided between orthopedic and plastic surgery faculty.

The program begins August 1 and concludes on July 31 of the following year. We participate in the National Residency Match Program. Like with all hand surgery fellowships, the process is highly competitive. Applicant interviews will be held virtually February 9 and 10, 2024. There are three fellowship positions available with selections made irrespective of residency background.
