University of Louisville Orthopedic Surgery Residents rotating in hand surgery in 2013-14 from Louisville, Ky. are: Adam Cochran; Victor Fehrenbacher; Shane Kibbe;  and, Zach Yenna. CMKI congratulates this year’s Senior Hand Surgery Fellows: Anas A.R Altamimi of Irbed, Jordan; Carlos Lozano of Monterrey, Mexico; and, Shihheng Chen of Taipei, Taiwan. CMKI’s Research Fellow is Dong Han from Shanghai, China.

The physicians of the Kleinert Kutz Hand Care Center teach the next generation of hand surgeons through CMKI’s ACGME-accredited fellowship program, which is a cooperative effort with the University of Louisville School of Medicine. The Fellows are fully trained plastic, orthopedic, or general surgeons from around the world who come to Louisville to get additional training in hand and micro surgery. To date, more than 1,274 physicians from 61 countries have served as Fellows. Dozens of research projects refining surgical techniques, testing new devices and pushing the frontiers of basic and clinical science in the field of hand surgery are currently underway and CMKI looks forward to the participation of this year’s class in research efforts.

The educational experience of Fellows consists of didactic conferences and lectures, as well as clinical experience – in the office, the emergency room, and the operating room – under the direct supervision of their mentors and teachers, the Kleinert Kutz Staff Surgeons. The opportunity to rotate with experienced world-renowned Hand Surgeons of varied background and clinical focus gives CMKI Fellows a view and experience of the same clinical challenge from a multitude of angles. The experience allows CMKI Hand Surgery Fellows to hone their clinical skills and expertise in a manner that will best fit their future patients and practice. This is also an educational experience that does not end.  All CMKI graduating Fellows join the Kleinert Society, a networking and social group of former CMKI fellows which has fostered Kleinert Societies in Japan and Korea.
