The fellowship boasts a wide depth and breadth of hand and upper extremity experience, with a rich didactic and clinical program. Each fellow completes an intensive course in both wrist and elbow arthroscopy and microsurgical skills at the outset of the fellowship. Participation in both clinic and hospital settings is mandated; surgical volume is outstanding.

The Hand, Upper Extremity, and Microsurgery Fellowship Training Program at The University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix will offer fellows special knowledge and training in the management of acute hand and upper extremity trauma, reconstructive upper extremity problems, congenital deformities and all aspects of microsurgery including replantation, reconstructive surgery, free tissue transfers and microneuropathy.
The 1-year program runs from August 1 through July 31 each year.
This fellowship is ACGME-accredited (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) for 2 positions and participates in the National Resident Matching Program.
Our faculty is made up of 13 talented, fellowship-trained individuals and leaders in their respective fields of upper extremity surgery and microsurgical reconstruction.
In order to satisfy the individual educational goals of all fellows, 3 months of elective time is offered for fellows to choose which area to concentrate their efforts.
Fellows have sufficient time to pursue independent learning and have protected time and resources to complete, publish and present a research project at the conclusion of the year.
