Fellowship Program

Letter from the Program Director

Dr. Meghan Imrie, Clinical Associate Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery

Thank you for your interest in our program. Our POSNA accredited fellowship provides the opportunity for a broad, yet in depth, experience in all aspects of pediatric orthopaedics. We have an outstanding faculty of 11 pediatric orthopaedic surgeons with subspecialty interests that include spinal deformity, sports medicine, childhood and adolescent hip disorders, limb deformities, oncology and neuromuscular disorders. Our research program has been ramping up since the addition of Katie Hastings MPH as our research coordinator a year ago and we have several gait labs to add to our fellow’s experience. I am excited to be a part of this terrific group of faculties, and to help advance our excellent resident and fellow educational programs.
