UK Based Fellowships

Hospitals in the UK host some of the best Foot & Ankle Fellowships in the world.  BOFAS aims to continually improve the quality of Foot & Ankle Surgical training for senior trainees after the completion of their specialist training, by  providing co-ordination and support.

BOFAS established the Advanced Foot & Ankle Fellows Forum in 2016. This an invitational three day course, which delivers an update on the current literature, sessions on the skills to be a new Consultant and a surgical “tips and tricks” day in a cadaver laboratory.

A good quality F&A Fellowship should provide a balance between surgical practice in theatre and of decision making in outpatients, with at least two clinics and at least three theatre sessions per week. There should be a regular multi-disciplinary team meeting, study leave with both protected time and a budget, a paid session for research or audit and a clear mechanism for feedback (Brown R et al. The Current Standards of Foot & Ankle Fellowships in the UK.)

This website provides contact details of UK Fellowships which provide training above and beyond these minimum criteria.

When considering a specific Fellowship, the prospective Fellow is advised to review the experience of the previous Fellows, looking at  their logbook summary and publication record. We highly recommend a direct conversation with the incumbent Fellow to determine if the Fellowship will fulfil their learning goals.
