About Rush University

Thank you for your interest in the hand surgery fellowship at Rush University. Our fellowship is ACGME-accredited. Our fellowship provides broad clinical training and research opportunities within the full spectrum of upper extremity surgery, including several areas which are traditionally difficult in which to receive training such as microsurgery, congenital hand and complex elbow surgery. Clinical settings are as diverse as the clinical exposure, including time spent at a high volume tertiary care academic center, a level I trauma county hospital and designated congenital hand at a pediatric hospital.

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

For additional information, please contact Phyllis Velez, fellowship coordinator at (312) 942-4301 or email
