Written by Sheanna Maine, MD Mauro Núñez, MD Regardless of our background, place of training or experience, we all have a common goal, to be able to offer our patients the best in terms of diagnostic certainty, timely and adequate treatment to improve their quality of life. Fellowship programs serve this purpose by seeking expertise in a specific area within ​​our specialty. These programs have shown their value by significantly shortening the learning curve of those who have studied them. While this holds true for established academic programs that usually last for a period of one year, we did not know exactly what to expect from a Traveling Fellowship, much less what the similarities might be, nor the dissimilar areas in comparison to a formal academic programs. PFTF 2017-2019 Our itinerary included 2 continents, three countries and 5 centers, visited over 4 weeks. We started with a week-long visit to Minneapolis, Minnesota with Dr. Elizabeth Arendt, followed by a flying visit to Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, with Dr Andrew Cosgarea and Dr Miho Tanaka. In that same [...]

Patellofemoral Foundation Funded Travelling Fellows
