Synthes Canada Craniofacial Fellowship:

The Fellowship, directed by Dr. Damir Matic, is for a 1-year period and is funded with full salary support. There are research funds available for both basic science and clinical projects (see objectives). The Fellowship consists of a 70% paediatric experience. This includes participation in the complete care of children born with cleft lip and palate, from the implementation of pre-surgical orthodontics to orthognathic surgery and cleft lip rhinoplasty. In addition, experience will be gained in treating patients with craniofacial anomalies, including both non-syndromic and syndromic craniosynostosis. The remaining 30% of the Fellowship includes the treatment of complex adult craniofacial trauma, as well as adult secondary reconstruction. There are opportunities to work with colleagues whose main interests include reconstruction of patients with facial nerve palsy, aesthetic surgery, and orthodontics. This is the first Craniofacial Fellowship in Canada of its kind that has been established with the support of Synthes Canada. It is unique in its ability to offer both a comprehensive paediatric and adult craniofacial experience. For more information contact: Dr. Damir Matic.
