Legacy's Craniomaxillofacial fellowship is a one-year program that blends CMF experience with trauma surgery. Roughly two-thirds of the fellow's time is spent gaining hands-on clinical training in CMF and trauma surgery. The other one-third focuses on trauma-related clinical research. This research can center on any aspects of trauma, and may not necessarily be maxillofacial. Unfortunately, funding limits prevent Legacy from offering this fellowship every year. The program is presently working on obtaining a grant for permanent funding from the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Foundation.
