McGill University Orthopedic Trauma fellowship


Gregory K Berry, MD, FRCSC
Edward J Harvey, MD, FRCSC
Rudolf Reindl, MD, FRCSC
Mitchell Bernstein, MD, FRCSC


The Montreal General Hospital is one of two level 1 trauma centers in Montreal, servicing not only the population of Montreal but much of the western half of Quebec. We serve as the tertiary referral center for complex trauma and high energy polytrauma cases. This is a high volume orthopedic trauma fellowship with extensive operative exposure to simple and complex orthopedic injuries spanning the full range of orthopedic traumatology.
All of the supervisors are orthopedic trauma fellowship trained members of the Orthopedic Trauma Association with sub-specialty interests. One to two operating rooms are designated exclusively for trauma cases every day of the week.
The fellow can expect to perform and/or assist in 900-1000 cases over the course of the year. These cases will consist of 70-80 pelvis / acetabular cases, complex articular and long bone fractures in the context of mono- and polytrauma.
Besides benefiting from an excellent case load, the fellow will also have the opportunity to participate in the research activities available. Two research assistants are available to help with any clinical projects. A close association with the McGill University Research Institute also facilitates possible basic science research.
The fellow will be integrated into the educational activities of the orthopedic program including resident and medical student teaching.
