Orthopaedic Surgery Physician Assistant Fellowship Program
The Orthopaedic Surgery Physician Assistant Fellowship Program (OSPAF) is a joint effort of Arrowhead Regional Medical Center’s department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Arrowhead Orthopaedics. The OSPAF program is an intensive clinical and didactic training experience with an emphasis in orthopaedic emergency and trauma. The fellow will gain competency in evaluation and treatment of trauma patients, orthopaedic office procedures, evaluation and care of the outpatient orthopaedic patient, and in first assisting the surgeon with a wide variety of orthopaedic procedures. In addition to the 250 operative cases performed monthly by the Orthopaedic Department, we also have daily outpatient clinics that average 1,200 patient appointments per month.
