The University of Utah Foot and Ankle Fellowship provides a complete, well-rounded academic experience in foot and ankle surgery. Clinics are active all days of the
week with four busy attending physicians in both academic and community settings. Nonsurgical and operative care are provided to patients from around the Intermountain West region. All aspects of foot and ankle care are taught including arthroplasty, arthroscopy, reconstructive surgery with arthrodesis and osteotomies, as well as sports medicine, diabetic, trauma, and forefoot care.
Annual events include visiting orthopedic professors in the foot and ankle subspecialty, a didactic teaching program, weekly educational conferences, journal club, research meetings, and the annual cycling ride to the summit of Big Mountain!
Research and teaching are integral parts of the fellowship. The fellow will participate in ongoing and original clinical and/or basic science research projects. The fellow will also participate in and lead conferences, teaching both orthopaedic residents and medical students.
