Hand Fellowship

Hand Fellowships provide additional expertise in surgery of the hand, wrist, and elbow. Our Hand Fellows are fully qualified orthopedic surgeons who have finished their orthopedic residency program and who have a special interest in hand surgery. They come to NEBH from across the country through a very competitive selection process for a year of intensive training in hand and upper extremity surgery. The Hand Fellowship is associated with Tufts University and is accredited by the ACGME and RRC. It is a combined program with the hand surgery staff at Tufts Medical Center. Two fellows are selected for the program each year, and they rotate between NEBH and Tufts Medical Center on a regular basis.

The fellowship program includes didactic sessions by the clinical staff and fellows, as well as direct participation in the evaluation and treatment of patients in the office and operating room under the supervision of the clinical staff.

After successful completion of the fellowship program, certification by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS), and subspecialty certification in hand surgery, fellows are eligible to apply for membership in the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH). The ASSH is the preeminent society for the care of the hand, wrist, and elbow.
