Dr. Samih Tarabichi Joint Replacement Center – Fellowship Program

Developing a sound matrix for further scholarship and learning is a fundamental objective of the two years Fellowship Program that we have initiated at Tarabichi center and which currently houses five posts. Prospective applicants must possess an active Dubai Health Authority (DHA) License with the satisfactory completion of an approved orthopedic residency training program.  Building on the strong tradition of education, the program was established over six years ago and it provides a rich and comprehensive didactic fellow education curriculum research – which is an important component of the Fellowship.

During this training period, the fellow is extensively exposed to reconstructive surgery, including revision knee. Fellows are expected to actively participate in studies during the fellowship, resulting in the submission of at least one peer-reviewed manuscript. These requirements provide a remarkable learning experience in terms of evaluating medical literature and research. Fellows also submit abstracts for their projects to various eminent annual orthopedic board meetings. If their project is selected for either podium or poster presentation, they are encouraged to attend and present their research. Fellows are also encouraged to assist with Grand Rounds lectures for the clinical staff at Tarabichi center with case presentations and lectures.

Customarily, the Fellowship is designed to allow increasing responsibility in the clinics and in surgery and accordingly, we try to assign a clinic to every Fellow through which he see and evaluate the patients for post-operative follow ups, in order to improve his clinical skills and judgment. In addition to having a knee registry that has data for over 6,000 patients, we are also actively involved in multiple research projects as well as clinical pursuits and education. The Fellows are fostered to partake in research projects and we have published seven papers in the last two years. We organize conferences on various levels and the Fellows are always keenly involved in organizing the meetings. The International Congress for Joint Reconstruction Middle East (ICJR ME) is annually organized by us and the Fellows are directly involved in its scientific meetings.

Our Fellowship programs are designed to dovetail with our Residency Training Program, and allow Fellows a year-long training program https://www.cialissansordonnancefr24.com/ in sub-specialty interest areas. The Program aims to recruit Fellows with outstanding academic potential and a strong track record of excellence in orthopedic surgery. We provide our Fellows state-of-the-art clinical training with mentorship in scholarly work during Fellowship to facilitate professional transition into sub-specialization. The residency program includes didactic training and extensive clinical experience while the training program shall benefit from a faculty that is dedicated to teaching, and a clinical practice that is both broad in scope, and deep in volume and experience. Fellowship training in an orthopedic subspecialty allows us to divide our practice into smaller, more focused centers of excellence. As orthopedic technologies and new surgical techniques are created, it affords our fellowship-trained subspecialists an advantage to stay current with these advances and have a more directed focus. Through our existing Fellowship program, graduated orthopedic surgeons shall be received here for an interval of minimum six months and maximum two years so as to advance their acquaintance in joint arthroplasty.

Recapitulating briefly, Tarabichi center Fellowship Program is committed to fostering a balance of intensive clinical experience, research and teaching opportunities – thereby augmenting and enhancing the program. This fellowship is an exciting state of the art experience that has numerous specialists that promise to provide a learning experience of both traditional and cutting edge innovations in the field. Each fellow who enroll for the program has a diverse training experience and brings a unique perspective to total joint replacement.
