Stanford Children’s Health Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery - Fellowship Program
Letter from the Program Director
Dr Steven Frick, Professor, Chief of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery
Thank you for your interest in our program- an update on our progress follows. On December 2016 I joined the Stanford University Department of Orthopedic Surgery as Vice Chair- Education and Chief of Pediatric Orthopedics at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital / Stanford. I also assumed the role of Fellowship Director, and am examining all aspects of our pediatric fellowship to insure an excellent educational experience. As you know, we already had an outstanding faculty with subspecialty interests including spinal deformity, sports medicine, childhood and adolescent hip disorders, limb deformities, oncology and neuromuscular disorders. My personal interests in pediatric foot and ankle disorders and musculoskeletal trauma added to the expertise already present in these areas. I am excited to be a part of this terrific group of faculties, and to help advance our excellent resident and fellow educational programs.

The Stanford University Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery Fellowship program is a one-year program in which the Peds fellow will obtain comprehensive experience in pediatric orthopaedics. Fellows will have the opportunity to work with all eleven pediatric orthopaedic surgeons and operate at four hospitals and be exposed to all aspects of pediatric orthopaedic surgery. Spinal deformity, sports medicine, hip preservation and DDH, neuromuscular disorders, congenital disease, and fractures comprise much of the experience. The fellow will be prepared for a career in academic Orthopaedics at any major university or children's hospital.
