Fellowships

Fellowships play an important role in the advancement of clinical expertise. As such, fellows are trained in the latest medical and surgical procedures and technologies.

DePuy Synthes partners with third-party organizations such as foundations and medical societies to provide fellowship grants to teaching institutions. These funds are managed by the third-party and support post-resident training in areas of specific interest to DePuy Synthes. Fellowship candidate selection is at the exclusive discretion of the teaching institution or academic program.

Importantly, fellowship awards are not contingent upon the use, purchase, or recommendation of DePuy Synthes products.
