Aspetar’s Clinical Specialist Fellowship (Orthopaedic Surgery) program provides the unique opportunity for fellows to work closely with a group of world-class Orthopaedic Surgeons, Sport and Exercise Medicine Physicians, and other sports medicine experts providing integrated athlete clinical care.
Aspetar’s Clinical Specialist Fellowship (Orthopaedic Surgery) program is not a mere educational experience; it is a highly individual mentorship program that creates life-long professional friendships. This program provides fellows with a strong foundation to become world-renowned surgeons as part of the Aspetar clinical family. The Aspetar Clinical Specialist Fellowship (Orthopaedic Surgery) is a comprehensive and very well structured one-year program, providing a well-rounded approach to post-residency clinical training. The Aspetar faculty members are all highly qualified, skilled, and experienced consultants in their respective clinical specialties.
The core clinical training focusses on surgical and clinical skills. In combination with out-patient clinics, fellows also work in the operating theatre where they learn different surgical techniques. The operative experience involves surgeries on different joints, including shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, ankle, knee, and groin. Aspetar’s Clinical Specialist Fellows will also be involved in providing medical care to many domestic and international sports events that Qatar is hosting.
Fellows have the opportunity to contribute to Aspetar’s clinical education programmes, including many accredited Continuing Professional Development / Continuing Medical Education activities (journal clubs, case presentations, Aspetar Tuesday Lecture Series and Aspetar’s Wednesday Webinar Series).
Aspetar’s Clinical Specialist Fellowship programmes prioritise research; we ensure appropriate support and mentorship to publish in peer-reviewed journals. In addition to dedicated lectures and tutorials on different topics, we also provide fellows with hands-on surgical skills training through Aspetar’s Surgical Skills Laboratory.
