Why does being 'fellowship-trained' matter?

Fellowship training is an honor reserved for the best doctors in their fields. Following residency, select doctors are given an opportunity to focus on a specialty-training under the best and most respected practicing physicians in that field.

 

If you’re seeing a fellowship-trained physician, rest assured that physician’s level of knowledge and experience is of the highest caliber.

 

BayCare Clinic providers Dr. Andrew Kirkpatrick, Dr. Brian J. Klika, and Dr. Steven C. Schmidt -- all of whom are hand surgeons -- are fellowship-trained and available to treat both simple and complex hand-related injuries and concerns.
