Goals and characteristics
The Royal Columbian Hospital is a level 1 trauma hospital and regional referral centre for over 1.6 million people in the Fraser Valley. It is a teaching hospital affiliated with the University of British Columbia. The Department of Orthopaedics is actively involved in the teaching of medical students, residents and fellows and participates in many research studies at a local and international level with the support of dedicated research staff.
The orthopaedic trauma team performs over 1700 orthopaedic trauma cases per year including pelvic, acetabular, extremity fractures including hand injuries and periprosthetic fractures on an emergent and urgent basis. On an elective basis, multiple patients with malunions, nonunions, infections, multi-planar deformities, bone loss and multi-ligament knee injuries are treated.
The goal of the fellowship is to increase the Fellow’s knowledge and experience in the treatment of the multiply injured patient, isolated traumatic injuries and their acute and late sequelae. The orthopaedic trauma fellow rotates between four orthopaedic trauma surgeons with subspecialties including foot and ankle, hand and orthopaedic trauma. The fellowship is one year in length and the fellow is expected to do call at an approximate 1:4 ratio. The fellow is also expected to participate in teaching medical students and residents, present at rounds, participate in department research activities and to complete one research project during the year.
The Fellow is required to have completed an accredited orthopaedic surgery residency program and at this time, we can only accept candidates who have a Canadian license.
