Shoulder & Elbow Fellowship Education

The Yale Shoulder and Elbow Service is directed by Dr. Theodore Blaine. The surgical experience will include arthroscopic, open and revision shoulder and elbow surgery. 

Yale New Haven Hospital is the major teaching hospital of Yale University and Yale Medical School. The Yale orthopaedic residency program has five residents per year, and the fellow will work closely with the residents on service to provide superior level care. 

The Shoulder and Elbow service is a tertiary referral center for total shoulder and elbow replacement. A level-one trauma center with an active orthopaedic trauma service, Yale New Haven Hospital also offers a unique opportunity to manage complex shoulder and elbow fractures. There is an active orthopaedic research lab, and a wide array of clinical and basic science (molecular biology and biomechanics) research projects will be available to the fellow. 

Completion of one basic science or clinical research project per year is expected of the fellow as a requirement for graduation. This program is part of the ASES Fellows selection process and participates in the ASES Fellows match.
