Fellowship in Interventional Orthopedics and Regenerative Medicine at the Regenerative SportsCare Institute
Thank you for your interest in the Interventional Orthopedics and Regenerative Medicine Fellowship Program at the Regenerative SportsCare Institute (RSI). This fellowship is designed for graduates of a residency program in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation with a strong interest in Interventional Sports and Spine Medicine with a focus on orthobiologic therapies. Qualified applicants must have a strong interest in clinical research. This fellowship is 12 months long and takes place at premier sports and spine private practice on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, New York City. Time spent in the program will be divided into approximately 60% clinical and 40% research each week. Candidates who have completed training and have been out in practice but are interested in further skill development are encouraged to apply.
