Foot and Ankle Fellowship

Welcome Message From the Director

Welcome to the University of Connecticut Foot and Ankle Fellowship. We have developed a comprehensive foot and ankle training program to develop highly competent surgeons. By teaming with Hartford Hospital and the Bone and Joint Institute, fellows have the opportunity to participate in the care of complicated trauma patients. During their time at UConn Health, they will have access to world-class biomechanics, research, and bioskills facilities and exposure to an academic practice. At Orthopedic Associates of Hartford, fellows will be exposed to a private practice model and a state-of-the-art surgery center. We believe we can provide a complete education that includes all varieties of foot and ankle pathology in a diverse patient population. Furthermore, we have an outstanding foot and ankle fellowship-trained faculty committed to your education. Thank you for your interest in our program.
