Shoulder fellowship at the University of Washington

Shoulder and elbow surgery is 75% knowledge, 75% skill and 75% art. It cannot be learned from books or labs alone; rather, like a new language, acquiring mastery requires immersion in a comprehensive experience focused on the evaluation and management of patients and a philosophy of practice. Our program is now almost 30 years old, one of the oldest shoulder and elbow fellowships in the world. We have a growing legacy outstanding alumni of the one-year experience through which we strive to provide such an opportunity for those who aspire to be the future leaders in this field. We are most grateful to the alumni of our fellowship for their research - which includes many foundational contributions to the literature, for their help in the care of our patients, and for their ongoing work to make tomorrow's patient care better than yesterday's.

This seems a fitting time to show a photo of some of our past fellows, perhaps you've heard of them.
