Dr. LaPrade was presented with the first ever “Outstanding Fellowship Teaching Award”, presented by the 2011-2012 Steadman Clinic fellows at their graduation dinner on July 28, 2012. The fellows noted that Dr. LaPrade was an outstanding mentor, clinician, teacher, and researcher and provided them with a role model for them to strive for in their careers.

Every year a team of fellows who have completed their orthopaedic residencies come to Vail to expand their surgical and research skills for twelve months. Their focus is on the causes, treatment and prevention of injuries.
