The Orthopaedic Value-Based Health Care Fellowship, affiliated with the Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care, gives medical students an extraordinary opportunity to learn about and investigate topics relevant to value-based health care payment and delivery models through firsthand exposure to the Musculoskeletal Institute at UT Health Austin.

Fellows work with department faculty on research projects related to the design, implementation and dissemination of value-based care models, outcome measurement, costs of care, impact of psychosocial aspects in musculoskeletal illness, the application of digital health solutions and advances in shared decision-making and patient-provider engagement.
