The non-operative orthopaedic fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital offers one year of specialty training in non-operative orthopaedics, the management of orthopaedic injuries and conditions through casting, bracing, injections, physical therapy, and other non-operative treatments.
This fellowship will provide maximum exposure in the areas of spinal injuries and conditions, cerebral palsy, foot and gait abnormalities, hip injuries and conditions, acute fracture management, and acute joint dislocation management. Additional opportunities in rheumatology, musculoskeletal radiology, rehabilitation, exercise physiology, ultrasonographic diagnosis and injection techniques, muscle diseases, and pediatric fitness are available and can be tailored toward the fellow’s interest.
Laboratory, translational, and clinical research opportunities are available and will be supported by the department. Fellows will be responsible for completing at least one research project during their fellowship year.
At the end of training, the graduating fellow will be capable of diagnosing musculoskeletal conditions, competent in the non-operative management of musculoskeletal conditions, and capable of determining the indications for referral to orthopaedic surgery. Furthermore, fellows will have foundation for conducting investigation into the developing field of non-operative orthopaedics.
