HAND SURGERY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

Welcome

WELCOME
to the Hand Surgery Fellowship Program
Thank you for your interest in the Hand Surgery Fellowship Program based at the University of Minnesota. Our Hand Fellowship Program began in 1991 as a collaboration between Dr. James H. House at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Edward C. McElfresh at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and Dr. Matthew D. Putnam at Park Nicollet Medical Center and the University of Minnesota. Over the course of time, our Fellowship Program has grown to include additional teaching sites and now encompasses rotations at Regions Hospital, Hennepin County Medical Center, and Gillette Childrens Specialty Healthcare, in addition to ongoing rotations at the original partner institutions of the University of Minnesota Medical Center Fairview, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and Park Nicollet Medical Center (now housed at TRIA Orthopaedic Center). Faculty who teach within the Hand Surgery Program represent the disciplines of orthopaedic and plastic surgery. A strong microsurgical trauma experience is provided at Regions Hospital. Our pediatric and adult reconstruction experiences are broad and second to none. An orthopaedic oncology exposure occurs at the University. A diverse and plentiful outpatient practice exists at TRIA and fellows regularly attend clinic and surgery at this location. Our trauma rotation, offered between both Regions Hospital and Hennepin County Medical Center, provides the hand fellow with a solid background in trauma teaching and experience. Our Hand Fellowship Program has remained highly competitive since its inception. Graduates have gone on to practice hand surgery successfully throughout the United States and, in one case, England. Thank you for your interest in our Hand Surgery Fellowship Program. The fellowship particpated in the match and used the universal application process (http:// www.uihealthcare.com/depts/med/orthopaedicsurgery/residency/handapp.pdf). Two interview dates are offered (one in the winter and one in the spring). Questions should be directed to Ms. Olson, the Fellowship Coordinator at olson073@umn.edu. Sincerely,

Welcome 1

Jason Mickels, M.D., continued. My experience at the University of Minnesota was outstanding. The program offers an excellent educational experience, with exposure to multiple hospital settings. All aspects of hand surgery are finely integrated to produce a well-rounded experience. My experience prepared me well for my current practice.

HAND SURGERY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

History of the Section of Hand Surgery and the Fellowship in Surgery of the Hand at the University of Minnesota
The history of hand surgery in Minnesota began prior to the founding of the Hand Surgical Fellowship Program. Dr. Wayne Thompson, a University of Minnesota orthopaedic residency program graduate, returned to the Twin Cities after a Hand Fellowship in 1961. Drs. Lowell Kelven and James House came to the Twin Cities Hand Community in the late 1960s and worked together to provide the bulk of hand surgical education to the orthopaedic residents and occasional visiting fellows into the 1970s. In this time frame, Dr. House established himself as an outstanding teacher at the University of Minnesota Medical School and an international leader in the field of tetraplegia surgery. Dr. Ed McElfresh joined the Twin Cities hand community in the mid-1970s and soon after established a favorite resident rotation in Hand Surgery at the Veterans Administration Medical Center. Dr. Thomas Varecka returned to the Twin Cities after his Hand Surgery training in the early 1980s and established the Hand Service at HCMC as an integral part of the Orthopaedic Resident training at HCMC. Dr. Matthew Putnam established a Hand Center at the Park Nicollet Clinic in 1988 and concomitantly joined Dr. James House at the Gillette Childrens Hospital and Dr. McElfresh at the VAMC in teaching residents and providing regular Hand Surgical care. This relationship between Drs. House, McElfresh and Putnam grew to include resident rotations at Park Nicollet Medical Center as well as their combined relationship at Gillette Childrens Hospital and the VAMC. These rotations became the nexus to start our Combined University/Community Fellowship in Hand Surgery in 1991. In late 1991, Drs. Scott McPherson and Jeff Husband both joined the Hand Program as members of the Park Nicollet Medical Center Faculty. In 1993, Dr. Ann VanHeest joined the faculty at the University of Minnesota and began work with Dr. James House at Gillette Childrens Hospital and the Shriners Hospital for Children. In 1995, Dr. House shifted his focus from the University to the VAMC where, in conjunction with Dr. Ed McElfresh, he co-led hand surgery educational efforts, a process he continues to this day. Unfortunately, our friend and colleague Dr. McElfresh passed away before his time in 2000.

HAND SURGERY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

History Beginning in 2002, the fellowship expanded to include the Regions Hospital campus. This occurred as a cooperative venture between the Department of Plastic Surgery (Drs. Warren Schubert, Loree Kallianin, James Fletcher, Martin Lacey, and Dean Mann) at Regions Hospital in conjunction with the University of Minnesota Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. This relationship established a predictable exposure to Level 1 hand trauma/microsurgery for the Fellowship and an enhancement for care of microsurgery patients in the Minnesota Region. In 2005, Hennepin County Medical Center joined the Hand Fellowship Program as an important rotation site. With this addition, it could be said with accuracy: the Twin Cities Academic Hand Surgeons work together towards a common goal of excellence in Hand Surgery Education. Now at the beginning of the 2008-2009 academic year the Fellowship looks forward to adding three new faculty members. Dr. Julie Adams will join Drs. Putnam and Van Heest in a full-time position at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview/University of Minnesota Physicians, Dr. Cherrie Heinrich will join the hand team at Regions Hospital in a full-time position and Dr. Deb Bohn will join the Gillette Childrens Hand Fellowship faculty. Both Drs. Bohn and Heinrich are graduates of the University of Minnesota Hand Fellowship. Academically, the Hand Fellowship takes pride in numerous accomplishments. Among these we count substantial contribution to fixation of distal radius fractures, several multi-center clinical studies of significance in childrens hand care and fracture care outcomes, and, most recently, the science of surgical skill acquisition. This last area is one of increased focus and accepted fellowship applicants would be welcomed into this developing area of research.
