Advanced Fellowship Training in Musculoskeletal Infection


The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Stanford University invites interested applicants, who have completed/are completing an accredited orthopaedic surgery residency or fellowship, to participate in a unique training experience in novel treatments for osteomyelitis and periprosthetic joint infection (PJI), bone defect management and transport, as well as complex limb reconstruction and salvage.


This unique experience at a high-volume center, involves operative training, clinical mentorship, targeted didactics, and an unprecedented research opportunity. The goal is to mentor and inspire the clinical innovators that will address the single most challenging problem facing orthopaedic surgery today - Musculoskeletal Infection.


Applicants will:


  • Work with a multidisciplinary team to manage osteomyelitis, native joint infection, and PJI as well as their sequelae.

  • Clinically engage in operative and office management of patients with osteomyelitis, PJI, limb deformity, as well as bone and soft tissue defects.

  • Engage in innovative basic and clinical research on musculoskeletal infection to validate techniques and develop original solutions.


The duration of this opportunity is 6 to 18 months and it is customizable based on the needs and interests of the applicant. This program is intended for those seeking advanced fellowship training and a leadership role in musculoskeletal infection. Graduates will be uniquely positioned for jobs in academic orthopaedic surgery. Those with Hl visas may apply. Prospective applicants should email a cover letter and curriculum vitae to Gabriela Ortiz (gortiz8@stanford.edu)   in the offices of Drs. David Lowenberg, Derek Amanatullah, and Robert Steffner.

Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Stanford also welcomes applications from others who would bring additional dimensions to the University's research, teaching, and clinical missions.
