The Sports Fellowship Program was an experience I wouldn't trade for anything! I am forever grateful for matching at the U-M Medical School Orthopaedic Surgery Department, as it was the perfect fit for me. Not only did the fellowship offer a wide variety of surgical cases, but the mentorship that was provided was second-to-none, and I still, to this day, don't hesitate to reach out to any of the staff that once trained me.
The University of Michigan offers highly competitive salaries and generous benefits to our fellows and advanced trainees. Trainee salary will be commensurate with that of a House Officer at an equivalent level of training based on the HOA contract.
