Meet the Fellowship Director
John Froehlich, MD, MBA, directs the adult reconstruction fellowship program.
The Lifespan/Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University Comprehensive Adult Reconstruction Fellowship offers opportunities to participate in a wide variety of basic, clinical, and translational research.
The Total Joint Center is participating in the function and outcomes research for comparative effectiveness in the Function and Outcomes Research for Comparative Effectiveness in Total Joint Replacement (FORCE-TJR) program, a national joint replacement registry developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The registry offers the opportunity to use the FORCE-TJR national database of more than 40,000 joint replacements to answer research questions requiring large databases. In addition, investigator-initiated research is ongoing into a wide variety of issues related to arthritis, joint replacement, and associated health care delivery.
Instruction and consultation are available in experimental design, regulatory compliance, professional writing, data management, statistics, and presentation through the clinical translational research program.
