Are you considering applying to pharmacy school but are concerned about job prospects when you graduate? Join us on Wednesday, July 28th at 8 PM Eastern to hear from three PharmDs about their experiences and options outside of retail pharmacy.
The Rothmann institute fellowship is heavily geared towards working in a private practice ortho group. This institute has some of the best and most impressive orthopedic surgeons in the country. A fellow classmate from residency is there now. His wife trained there also. You get the opportunity to work with Lev Nassarian, one of the leaders of MSK ultrasound. The negatives (or maybe positives for interventionalists) is that procedures are limited to lumbars (TFESI, facet blocks) and sports exposure seemed limited since the orthopods are the ones seeing and taking care of those patients. You can however latch on with the orthopods and do sports coverage. MSK and research opportunities are very solid.
Whether you like the Rothmann Institute depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a well rounded spine program, then look at other programs. If you want work in an orthopedic practice, then this program is for you.
