The Orthopedic Physician Assistant Fellowship Program at Peachtree Orthopedics is a 12-month post graduate program created to build upon the primary care foundation and enhance a physician assistant’s knowledge of orthopedic care and treatment.

Peachtree Orthopedics understands the critical role advanced practice providers play within the orthopedic setting and their goal is to develop a program aimed at creating more specialized providers that can assist in any orthopedic practice by the end of their fellowship.

Program affiliations with Northside Hospital, Piedmont Hospital and Wellstar Kennestone will provide a well-rounded education for the fellows. Our fellows will have the opportunity to work with over 30 fellowship trained orthopedic surgeons within our multi-specialty private practice and over 20 orthopedic physician assistants and nurse practitioners.



Participants will be exposed to all aspects of orthopedic care, gaining first-hand experience in our clinics throughout greater Atlanta. They will participate in:
• Grand rounds
• Journal club
• Taking call
• First assist
• Suturing
• Casting/splinting

Throughout the 12 months, the fellow will rotate within our orthopedic subspecialties, including:
• Sports medicine
• Hand, wrist, and upper extremity
• Foot and ankle
• Joint replacement
• Back, neck and spine
• Pain management


A rolling application process with availability for two fellows per year.
