Fellows rotate through an organized monthly schedule through different site locations, rotating and working with different surgeons. These rotations are organized in such a way to provide a longitudinal learning environment through the various hand and upper extremity sub-specialties. While this educational approach has been created to provide structure throughout the training year, by no means is it "set in stone." All of the training faculty will allow for flexibility within the rotation schedule to allow fellows to temporarily switch or substitute days (for example to assist with a rare surgical case or to see uncommon clinical pathology) in order to maximize their training and education throughout the year. Each of these different satellite training locations that are a part of the fellow's educational rotations are located within a short 20 minute drive of ORMC and downtown Orlando.
