Dr, Capoferri is a graduate, the first, for the fellowship in Spinal Biomechanics and Trauma by the National Spine Management Group.
About The Fellowship
The KEY to the Fellowship process lies in the actual clinical exposure, which is guided by a mentor in that specialty and whose foundation is research/evidence based. The clinical and case specific side is where the real learning occurs, and the Fellow is applying their base knowledge to clinical case situations. The focus of the Fellowship is not merely on treatment, but also on diagnosis and management of various conditions. The Chiropractic profession has a very well-established foundation for our chiropractic school curriculum and that level of education is equivalent to programs in medicine and osteopathy, however that is where we cease to keep up. In medicine and osteopathy after a student graduates, they are a physician, but they are not yet board certified. They will enter a medical residency program to receive further training in that area of specialty leading to Board Certification. For example, residencies in Family Medicine are 3 years in length and seven years for neurosurgery. Residency provides the clinical experience consistent with the medical specialty. Once the residency program is completed, the physician can continue onto additional training within a Fellowship Program. Examples of Fellowship Programs would be Cardiology, Vascular Surgery, Sleep Medicine, Reproductive Endocrinology, and Interventional Radiology.
