This month James was awarded an Arthritis Australia / Zimmer Orthopaedic Fellowship Scholarship. The funding is awarded to Australian orthopaedic surgeons who seek additional, non-compulsory, sub-specialty Fellowship training, either locally or abroad.
Sub-specialty Fellowship training is an excellent opportunity for surgeons to travel abroad and train with internationally-renowned colleagues in world-class institutions. Often, an international Fellowship affords the opportunity to bring back new ideas, knowledge and equipment to Adelaide. These opportunities also allow a surgeon to attend international sub-specialty meetings and participate in a broader range of research and teaching.
James has sought additional training abroad, including two competitive, sub-specialty clinical fellowships:
- Shoulder & Elbow Fellowship at Addenbrooke's Hospital / University of Cambridge (United Kingdom)
- Upper Limb & Hand Fellowship at St Paul's Hospital / University of British Columbia (Canada).
