Thank you for your interest in our visiting research scholar program with Washington University Orthopedics. Please note that since our program is a strict observationship, there is no active participation in surgeries or patient care. Our positions are unpaid, so the visitor would need to secure his/her own funding entirely. Also, positions are limited usually to no more than five at any one time. Competition, therefore, can be quite high. Additionally, please note that our visiting research scholar program is reserved only for surgeons who have practiced for a few years in the subspecialty of spinal surgery after having completed their orthopaedic or neurological surgery residency and/or spine subspecialty training. For our positions, our attendings also consider the surgeon’s published spinal surgery articles in international peer-reviewed journals. If you are interested in applying to our program, fill out the contact form below. Thank you!
