The MedStar Union Memorial Foot and Ankle fellowship program enters its 27th year with a renewed zeal to fulfill its mission of training the future leaders in foot and ankle. We have added outstanding clinical and research faculty to deliver a superior educational experience. Opportunities for clinical research, biomechanical studies and orthobiologic investigations sets our institution apart from the others.
The STAT lab continues to produce award-winning research and publications. Our program's orthopaedic orthobiologic laboratory is a one-of-a-kind facility dedicated to the foot and ankle. We hope to continue to explore and create new technologies, not only in orthopaedic procedures, but also in implantable hardware and tissue engineering in these environments.
Collaboration with the undergraduate and graduate programs at both Johns Hopkins University and Georgetown University have been strengthened and will further benefit research and development. Interaction with scientists and engineers in the orthopaedic industry complete a well-rounded experience for our fellows.
Our program is ACGME-accredited, which participates in the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS). Match is administered by the San Francisco Matching Service (SFMS). In accordance with the guidelines that have been established by AOFAS, we cannot formally consider you for a fellowship position unless you have registered with SFMS.
Applications should be submitted through the AOFAS website. AOFAS will forward your application to the programs you select. Make sure to select MedStar Union Memorial Foot and Ankle Fellowship.
Interview dates will be scheduled for the months of December, January, February and March. Please contact Patricia Koehler at [email protected] for more information.
