Trauma Fellowship - Campbell Clinic

The University of Tennessee - Campbell Clinic Trauma fellowship provides a comprehensive trauma experience at a high volume Level I trauma center serving as a referral facility for five states including Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, and Kentucky. 

There are currently four orthopaedic traumatologists on staff. The fellowship is primarily focused on the following three areas: 1) Management, both operative and nonoperative, of complex polytrauma including pelvic, acetabular, and periarticular fractures, 2) Reconstructive fracture management including nonunions, malunions, and deformity correction, and 3) Clinical investigation and research. The fellowship provides extensive operative exposure of complex fractures with an emphasis on pelvic and acetabular injuries. 

The Fellow interacts with two orthopaedic trauma teams. Duties include daily morning report/fracture conference. This conference, attended by residents, Fellow, and staff, includes discussion of indications and preoperative planning as well as review of operative and nonoperative cases from the previous day. The Fellow then has first choice of operative cases. A minimum of three orthopaedic trauma rooms is available daily. The Fellow has opportunities for research and to pursue additional areas of interest including total joint replacement for acetabular fracture, periacetabular osteotomies, and deformity correction. 

The Fellow is encouraged to attend several instructional courses and national meetings throughout the year. This fellowship participates in the match program and is OTA Accredited. Time and facilities are available for clinical and basic science research projects.  Campbell Foundation support staff is available to assist in this research. Fellow is encouraged to work on at least one research project during the fellowship year. It is expected that this research will result in a presentation, a publication, or both.
