North Queensland Upper Limb Arthroplasty and Reconstruction Fellowship
Chief Supervisor: Dr Levi Morse FRACS FAOrthoA
Location: Townsville, Australia
Dr Levi Morse is chief supervisor for the North Queensland Upper Limb Arthroplasty and Reconstructive Fellowship. The fellowship is AOA accredited, and is jointly run through the Orthopaedic Research Institute of Queensland (ORIQL – see www.oriql.com.au), Dr Morse’s private rooms (and the private hospitals he visits) and the Townsville University Hospital.
The fellowship is largely clinical with a heavy weighting towards shoulder and upper limb surgery. Some flexibility exists to structure the fellowship with additional exposure to knee and / or hip surgery depending on the fellow’s preferences. The fellow will also assist a research PHO and research coordinator in the research component of the fellowship.
The goal of the fellowship is to provide experience in all forms of shoulder and upper limb surgery, in particular a very high volume of shoulder arthroplasty and arthroscopic procedures. Exposure to elective elbow, wrist and hand procedures (arthroscopic and open) will also be in high volume.
The fellowship is based primarily in the private sector, however depending on the level of expertise of the fellow, the opportunity exists in the public sector to gain experience as the primary surgeon.
Townsville is an amazing part of Australia, with Magnetic Island, the Great Barrier Reef and rainforest waterfalls on your doorstep. The fellow will be encouraged to make the most of their time in North Queensland to explore and enjoy!
