The Fellowship Program at University Foot & Ankle Institute

Updated 8/2/2021
UFAI fellows discuss the benefits of the Fellowship Program at the University Foot and Ankle Institute.

The American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS) highly recommends the continuation of foot and ankle surgical education after residency in the form of a specialized fellowship.

 

In order to foster high-quality fellowship programs through support, recognition, and visibility, the ACFAS Board of Directors approved the "ACFAS Recognized Fellowship" initiative.

 

Programs meeting minimal requirements are officially recognized by the College, which will, in turn, provide support for these recognized programs through grants and visibility.  Fellows of these recognized programs will benefit from lower dues rates, job placement assistance, and recognition of program completion.

 

Our fellowship program meets requirements and has been granted the ACFAS Recognized Fellowship or Conditional Status Fellowship status.

The following recognized fellowships are available at the University Foot and Ankle Institute
