Research & Clinical Opportunities
We believe in the value of research as a key component in a well-rounded fellowship training program in Orthopedic Surgery. You’ll be encouraged to learn about the process of conducting clinical and basic research, and to investigate the research facilities and resources available at our campus.
Our Fellows have the chance to work with our Director of Clinical Research, Dr. Kenneth Rogers, and collaborate with our three Research fellows, who are international surgeons spending a year at Nemours to focus on clinical research. Nemours is partnered with several large multi-center clinical databases and we routinely collect clinical outcomes data, allowing for easy access when designing and carrying out Fellows’ research projects.
The Department also provides an annual stipend and access to several grants to support our Fellows as they travel to present their research and attend educational conferences.
