          Second Annual
 Competency Assessment
        Day with visiting
professor Steven McCabe
   from the University of
        Louisville, 2008.
University of Minnesota Medical School
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
Children’s 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,




Matthew D. Putnam, M.D.
                                                                                                    Welcome

                                        Fellowship Research
                                        University of Minnesota Medical School Hand Surgery Fellows are required to do a minimum of one research
                                        project (of publishable quality) during their fellowship program. The process is as follows:

                                         ● The fellows identify a project and mentor during the first month of their fellowship year

                                         ● The fellow makes application to the IRB, if necessary, and identifies any needed funding with the
                                           selected mentor

                                         ● The fellow presents the project and its status to the Fellowship Director on a quarterly basis

                                         ● The fellow presents the project in its state of completion in the spring of the fellowship year at the:
                                           House Visiting Professorship/Annual University of Minnesota Hand Surgical Review

                                         ● The fellow completes the manuscript to be:
                                               o sent to an appropriate journal prior to graduation
                                               o submitted to the ASSH Annual Residents and Fellows program held in conjunction with the
                                                 ASSH Annual Meeting


                                        Fellowship Documentation Program
                                        The fellows are required to maintain a log of cases during the course of their fellowship training. This log is
                                        inserted into the ACGME case log website. This will be reviewed periodically with the Fellowship Director.


                                        Educational Documentation and Feedback
                                        As part of the ongoing improvement of our Hand Surgery Fellowship Program, the staff and fellows interact
                                        quarterly in a 360 feedback cycle utilizing an online educational/teaching assessment program. The
                                        Fellowship Director is the primary contact if the fellows have a problem that he/she does not feel can be
                                        documented through this process or resolved locally.


                                        Microsurgical Training
Duties / Expectations / Opportunities




                                        The fellowship currently enrolls the fellows in a one week training program at an off-site facility. This one
                                        week rotation occurs independently for each fellow and generally within the first month of the fellowship
                                        program.

                                                Fellowship Duties, Expectations, and Opportunities
Equal Opportunity
The University of Minnesota is committed to the policy that all persons shall have equal access to its programs,
facilities, and employment without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status,
disability, public assistance status, veteran status, or sexual orientation.

International Fellowship Visitors
The University of Minnesota Section of Hand Surgery is open to visitors on a pre-arranged basis. No funding
is currently available for these visits. In general, individuals wishing to visit the Fellowship Training Program
in this manner would be expected to stay a minimum of 6 weeks in order to receive recognition that they had in
fact attended and been present for lectures/training sessions. Occasionally, visits have been arranged that are
coordinated between the University of Minnesota School of Medicine/Hand Fellowship Program and the Mayo
Clinic. Regardless of arrangements made, the experience obtained in this manner is largely observational,
although some direct laboratory research work could be performed. Housing arrangements can be facilitated,
but, as with funding, support monies must come from the visitor’s home institution.

Fellowship Salary and Benefits (For fellows accepted to the ACGME Fellowship Program)

PGY-6 salary as set by the University of Minnesota for training year.

   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
Children’s 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 Children’s 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 Children’s Hospital and the
Shriner’s 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.

                                                                                          19

          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
                    Children’s 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 children’s 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.
