From the Editor

Here at the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America (POSNA), we realize that education and training are constantly changing.  Published twice each year, Resident Review strives to keep residents and fellows informed of such changes within the field pediatric orthopaedics.

Subspecialty Training in Pediatric Orthopaedics

Recently there has been an increase in the number of pediatric orthopaedic surgeons subspecializing in different areas of pediatric orthopaedics. Raw data from the POSNA Practice Management Committee has shown that close to 30% of recent graduates from pediatric orthopaedic fellowship programs decide to do a second fellowship which could potentially dramatically change the way pediatric orthopaedics is practiced in the United States.We have interviewed three pediatric orthopaedic surgeons who have established subspecialty practices to seek their opinion in this recent trend.

Five Questions about Subspecialty Training

In recent years, there has been increasing interest among pediatric orthopaedic fellowship applicants to pursue subspecialty training. Many applicants consider secondary fellowships in a variety of disciplines to further their surgical training. I had the opportunity to interview former POSNA President John (Jack) M. Flynn, MD about this topic.
