- Taught how to perform on-the-field evaluation and emergency management of acutely injured athletes by participating in game coverage of University of Wisconsin athletic teams
- Given extensive surgical exposure in the areas of knee and shoulder reconstruction as well as general arthroscopic surgery of the knee, shoulder, ankle, and elbow
In addition, fellows are required to participate in clinical or laboratory research one to two days per week. Completion of at least one project for publication is also required during the course of their fellowship.
