David P. Roye, Jr., MD, Clinical Research Fellowship

The David P. Roye, Jr., MD, Clinical Research Fellowship at Columbia Orthopedics and New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital comprises both clinical and research exposure within the field of Pediatric Orthopedics. Our mission is to improve pediatric musculoskeletal health through evidence-based clinical research. This one-year clinical research fellowship is for medical students interested in pursuing a career in Orthopedic Surgery. This program will offer hands-on collaboration with junior and senior faculty research mentors, including orthopedic surgeons. The fellow will work in the fields of clinical research, patient-based outcome research, and quality and safety research. 

"Producing meaningful clinical research is intrinsic to the mission of an academic pediatric orthopedic service. The renowned clinical laboratory at Columbia Orthopedics has provided leadership in a number of important areas and continues to spearhead investigations that have significantly impacted patient care. The continuing mission of productive clinical research cannot be accomplished without the energy, intelligence, and continuity provided by our research fellows, the next generation of leaders." Dr. David Roye, Emeritus St. Giles Professor of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery.
