ESSKA DePuy Knee and Shoulder Continuum of Care Fellowship
Share |

This Fellowship is focused on total joint replacement, particularly on knees and shoulder replacements.

This instructional programme includes the possibility to learn correct indications for degenerative joint diseases, joint stiffness and pain. The surgical techniques will be clearly explained in up to four weeks full-duty training. Special theoretical and practical sessions are developed to make young surgeons be able to perform joint replacement easily.

The fellows will participate in several surgeries and patient evaluations. Teaching centres are selected among ESSKA accredited centres in Europe.

There are 15 positions available each year, which are open to applications from Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The Fellowship covers travel and accommodation.

It is organised in conjunction with EKA and ESA (the relevant sections of ESSKA), and sponsored by DePuy Synthes, one of our major sponsors.
