The Division of Orthopedic Surgery at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia collaborates with the International Society of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology (SICOT), to offer a six- to 12-month joint fellowship in orthopedics.
The fellowship program began in 2013 and offers one SICOT member an opportunity to work side-by-side with CHOP’s leading surgeons, physicians and researchers. Fellows will expand their knowledge and exposure to the field of pediatric orthopedics and become involved in high-quality clinical and/or basic research projects.
SICOT is an international nonprofit association with the aim of advancing the science and art of orthopedics and traumatology at an international level and to foster and develop teaching, research and education. John P. Dormans, MD, chief of CHOP’s Division of Orthopedic Surgery, is the vice president of SICOT’s North America chapter.
