Pediatricians see an overwhelming number of children with musculoskeletal issues. Within our three Norton Children’s pediatric emergency departments, as many as 6,000 visits a year are related to orthopedic issues, most of which do not require surgery.
An average of one in 20 cases evaluated in the office by a pediatric orthopedic surgeon requires surgical intervention. There is high demand for primary care physicians specially trained in the evaluation and nonsurgical management of general pediatric orthopedic and musculoskeletal injuries and conditions.
Norton Children’s Orthopedics of Louisville, a practice group within Norton Children’s Medical Group, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, is offering a fellowship opportunity to a qualified candidate. This is a one-year fellowship for a final-year pediatric (or related field) resident for evaluation and nonsurgical management of patients in a busy pediatric orthopedic clinic.
This fellowship includes training through Norton Children’s Hospital and Norton Children’s Orthopedics of Louisville, who have an established educational training platform for University of Louisville School of Medicine orthopedic surgery residents and family medicine/sports medicine fellows.
The “Derby City” offers much more than horse racing. Fall in love with Louisville’s eclectic neighborhoods, affordable living and rich history of arts, culture and cuisine. You can enjoy a breathtaking outdoor adventure, sip bourbon from an award-winning microdistillery and explore a vibrant arts community — all in one day.
