Fellowship training is a pivotal part of many practitioners’ careers. Moreover, senior physicians consider mentorship to be among their most fulfilling professional activities. Also, hospitals invest heavily in personnel, recruitment efforts and strategic planning to implement a successful fellowship program. They, like the fellows themselves, look for a return on their investments.
The benefits of fellowship are well-reported and manifold. They include clinical expertise, academic productivity, higher quality care, more time doing research, greater career satisfaction, higher success rates with grant proposals, publication, and career advancement.
Unfortunately, a fellowship program lasts only one to three years. Once it is over, the realities of medical practice greatly reduce the opportunities for collaboration with peers, mentors, and researchers. It becomes much more difficult to keep up with advances in medical science and clinical best practices. For the fellows, their mentors, and the sponsoring hospitals themselves it is regrettable that the best attributes of fellowship training largely disappear once the formal program has concluded.
This need not be the case. Modern platforms and processes enable efficient approaches to training, education, and collaboration across institutional and indeed national boundaries. Circles are designed and used to facilitate not only the continuation of fellowship benefits, but to build upon them for all concerned.

In this newsletter, we summarize the work of leading physicians as they develop clinical decision support for common musculoskeletal pathologies. Through the quality improvement and pragmatic studies embedded in their Circles, those clinicians are generating sustained financial and professional value for themselves, and improving patient care, with minimum burden. Moreover, their Circles are often supported by industry.
