Fellowships and Athletic Training Residency

Educating Tomorrow’s Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Leaders

In partnership with Steadman Philippon Research Institute, The Steadman Clinic hosts clinical fellows—MDs who have completed their orthopaedic residency programs—each year. The Steadman Clinic also hosts athletic training residents in a year-long Athletic Training Residency program.

Clinical Fellowships

SPRI’s Department of Education is focused on educating top orthopaedic surgeons following their residency. Each year, SPRI hosts these surgeons for a one-year intensive at SPRI and The Steadman Clinic. These programs include the ACGME-accredited Sports Medicine Fellowship, Foot & Ankle Fellowship and Hip Preservation & Reconstruction Fellowship. Over the past year, SPRI has hosted eight sports medicine fellows, one foot & ankle fellow and one hip preservation & reconstruction fellow. These physicians work with attending faculty from The Steadman Clinic and each of SPRI’s research teams to have a comprehensive clinical fellowship that is based in research and the practice of evidence-based medicine.

Each year, two clinical fellows are selected by the Tang Family as named fellows, sponsored by the Tang Family Education Endowment.

The clinical fellowship alumni network now includes nearly 260 surgeons practicing in communities around the world. These alumni often hold academic positions at leading universities, maintain chief positions at hospitals and work at elite practices. Several of the programs’ former fellows have been recruited back to The Steadman Clinic as physicians, including Drs. Randall W. Viola, Peter J. Millett, C. Thomas Haytmanek, Jr, Jonathan A. Godin, Jared T. Lee and Joseph J. Ruzbarsky. Three of these former fellows now serve on the faculty for these clinical fellowships—Drs. Millett, Haytmanek and Godin.
