We appoint two Fellows each year to undertake independent and collaborative research projects while developing their surgical, clinical and teaching skills under the expert guidance of Dr Young and Dr Cass as well as our esteemed colleagues Professor David Sonnabend and Dr Jeffery Hughes.
Each year, Sydney Shoulder Research Institute offers two coveted positions for Shoulder and Elbow Surgery Fellowship:
Of 12 months duration each the Sydney Shoulder Research Institute Fellowship commences late January and the Sydney Shoulder Research Institute Clinical Fellowship commences late July.
Both Fellowships provide thorough training through a combination of clinical and research experience.
The Fellowships are based at Royal North Shore Hospital, a large modern tertiary referral public hospital on the lower north shore of Sydney where SSRI Fellows are exposed to a broad range of shoulder and elbow pathology, both elective and trauma.
Fellows are involved in outpatient clinics, elective and trauma operating lists, private assisting and regular educational meetings.
Fellows are also expected to publish and present at least one scientific paper during their appointment.
Entry to the SSRI Fellowship Program is extremely competitive.
Applications open 2 years prior to commencement and positions are offered around 1 year prior to commencement.
Presently, there are no fellowship positions available before January 2017.
Applications for 2017 and 2018 fellowships are welcome from January 2015 onwards.
