About Rush University

Thank you for your interest in the adult reconstructive fellowship at Rush and Central DuPage Hospital.

Our fellowship provides unparalleled clinical training and research opportunities in total joint replacement surgery. With approximately 4,000 procedures performed annually by seven surgeons, the fellow will be exposed to a wide range of reconstructive procedures including a substantial volume of complex primary and revision total hip and knee arthroplasties. The experience also includes exposure to "MIS" surgical techniques, unicompartmental knee arthroplasty and hip resurfacing. The fellowship has a heritage that spans two decades and our goal is to train future leaders in the field. Each Fellow is required to produce at least one clinical paper appropriate for presentation and publication. Opportunities for research include access to a clinical database with over 25 years of data.

Applicants must have successfully completed a U.S. or Canadian orthopaedic residency prior to the fellowship year and be eligible for permanent licensure in Illinois.

For additional information, please contact Peggy Arp, fellowship coordinator at: Midwest Orthopaedics @ Rush, (603) 339-2217 or email
