In March 2012, Dr Allan Young and Dr Benjamin Cass founded Sydney Shoulder Research Institute (SSRI). SSRI is dedicated to undertaking research that will translate into real patient outcomes and innovations in the field of orthopaedic surgery. We focus on only a select number of projects at any given time to maximise the quality of our research.
We engage 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.
Drs Young and Cass engaged Jasmin Gwynne to establish SSRI and Jasmin now oversees all of the Institute’s research, fellowship and operational activities. Prior to joining SSRI, Jasmin spent 10 years in clinical psychology and 9 years in community services.
SSRI offers a highly regarded AOA accredited Fellowship Training Program.
Each year, Sydney Shoulder Research Institute offers 2 coveted positions for Shoulder and Elbow Surgery Fellowship. The Supervising surgeon for the Fellowship is Dr Allan Young and the mentoring surgeons are Prof David Sonnabend, Dr Benjamin Cass and Dr Jeffery Hughes. Of 12 months duration commencing either late January or late July, the SSRI Fellowship provides thorough training through a combination of clinical and research experience.
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.
