The spine surgery team includes a fellow, resident, advanced practice providers and the spine faculty.
Curriculum consists of
- faculty interaction
- didactic lectures
- outpatient clinics
Each section of the curriculum emphasizes basic science, diagnosis, pathogenesis, operative and non-operative decision making, along with results and complications of all treatments. The outpatient component of the program is held at the Beaumont Orthopaedic Institute, where the fellows see new patients, determine surgical plans, and manage their own postoperative patients.
The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery fully supports the attendance of the fellow at one national meeting during the fellowship.
meetings to choose from are
- American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons
- Cervical Spine Research Society
- North American Spine Society

Lumbar Spine (if held within the United States)
