Educational Program

Educational methods focus on the production of a qualified independent practitioner of Hand and Microsurgery that can begin practice successfully BOTH in an academic and private practice setting.

We do this through exposure to patients in:

  • Clinic — Both independently, and with the attending surgeons in their private practices
  • Surgery — Both independently, and with the attending surgeons in their private practices
  • The Emergency Room — As junior consultants for the junior and senior level residents on-call to the Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St Louis Children’s Hospital emergency rooms.

We also further the Fellows’ educational goals through:

  • Research — Through the initiation and completion of peer-review quality works of independent research
  • Microsurgery Education — In Coimbatore, India, under the guidance of Dr. Raja Sabapathy & Dr. Hari Venkatramani for a 5-day intensive lab course followed by a microsurgical observership. Also, additional training in performing free tissue transfer can be arranged at the Chang Gung Hospital in Linkao, Taiwan, with Dr. Fu Chan Wei and Dr. Ming Huei Cheng.
  • Teaching — Rounds, Conferences, Dissections, Courses & Workshops
