New Mexico Orthopaedics Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine Fellowship

Welcome

Our Mission

The New Mexico Orthopaedics Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine Fellowship is an ACGME Accredited program dedicated to providing education and training for young orthopaedic sports medicine physicians. The fellowship is committed to offering extensive clinical and surgical experience with patients suffering from a wide variety of orthopaedic problems. Fellows are given the opportunity to improve their skills in a variety of treatment areas and to gain expertise with the resources and workings of a state of the art private practice facility.

About the Fellowship

Working in the largest orthopaedic practice in the state, the New Mexico Orthopaedics Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine Fellowship includes extensive exposure to shoulders, knees and hips, while also gaining surgical experiences with ankle, elbow and wrist problems. Fellows will have direct contact with athletes from basketball, AAA Baseball, a variety of high school and club sports and professional hockey (when team located in Albuquerque). During this ACGME accredited program, the fellows will do rotations under seven specialty-trained physicians, allowing them to see a range of treatment techniques and sports injury ailments.

In the effort to create a more fair and orderly system for applicants to select a fellowship program, the New Mexico Orthopaedics Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine Fellowship is utilizing the San Francisco Matching Services (SF Match) sponsored by AANA and AOSSM. This program is designed to regulate the process that fellowship programs use in collecting applications, interviewing candidates and extending offers to the applicant of their choice. More detailed information on the Match Program can be found on the AOSSM website.

The Fellowship is sponsored and supported by the New Mexico Orthopaedic Fellowship Foundation. This is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation whose mission is to support postgraduate specialty orthopaedic education and research.
