Department of Orthopedic Surgery

Pediatric Orthopedics Fellowship Research


Texas Children’s Hospital is the largest children’s hospital in the United States. This allows for unmatched access to high patient volumes that can be utilized for clinical

Clinical fellows will have the opportunity to work on projects with support from two research coordinators and two pediatric orthopaedic research fellows. Research projects are available in either laboratory-based (basic science) or clinically-based fields directly related to the field of interest to the fellow.

All projects are performed under the supervision of the director of Orthopedic Research and each fellow’s research mentor, both of whom are actively involved with the fellow in all phases of the investigational studies.

Each pediatric orthopedic fellow is required to complete a publishable research project during the period of his/her fellowship and to submit a paper for publication to a referred journal. Fellows will prepare and make a formal presentation to the Orthopedic faculty at the Annual William A. Phillips Pediatric Orthopaedic Symposium at the end of the fellowship year.
