Orthopaedic Surgery - Shoulder & Elbow Fellowship, Royal Oak


Research is an integral component of the Adult Reconstruction - Shoulder and Elbow Fellowship. A wide variety of research opportunities are available which are supported by a multi-million-dollar budget. A research project will be required.

Fellows are responsible for:

  • Developing the research protocol and methods
  • Ensuring statistical validity of the anticipated sample size
  • Collecting the data
  • Formulating valid conclusions

The fellow will be given ample time for project completion. It is expected that these projects will be presented at national meetings and published in appropriate peer-reviewed journals.

Research areas of focus

  • Polyethylene wear simulation of shoulder prostheses
  • Retrieved shoulder implant analyses
  • Biomechanical testing of glenoid component fixation
