A unique opportunity
Two fellowship positions are offered per each academic year. The Winnipeg Spine Program has created a robust educational curriculum to fulfill the needs of modern spine training.
Diverse training experience
Fellows participate in spine oncology rounds in conjunction with radiation oncology. The program is structured to allow fellows to rotate for two to three blocks with each spine surgeon at the University of Manitoba.
Extensive clinical cases
It is expected that the spine fellow should be able to participate in 200-300 spine cases per year. In addition to operative cases, the fellow will be responsible for the assessment of patients in clinic and management of in-patients.
Each fellow will be expected to complete at least one research project through their year of training.
