About Us


We have weekly hand service conferences that incorporate didactic, journal club and case presentation/discussion style meetings.  These strive to teach concepts of basic and advanced hand surgery and encourage critical evaluation of hand surgery literature.  Faculty, fellows and residents are present at all conferences.  We have a repeating monthly schedule including:

  • Topic Focused Journal Club
  • Current Literature Journal Club
  • Topic Specific Case Presentations
  • Hand Research Group Meeting

Our fellows also participate in hand section and departmental Mortality and Morbidity Conferences, relevant Grand Rounds and resident CORE curriculum lectures.

We provide state of the art microsurgical training through a joint Microsurgery course with the Section of Plastic Surgery, and additional flap training at the ASSH course “The Complete Hand Surgeon: Flaps You Should Know After Fellowship”


Prerequisite education must be completed in a general surgery, orthopaedic surgery, or plastic surgery program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or the Royal College or Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
