Residency Training Opportunities

Orthopaedic education is a dynamic process. It begins before medical school and continues throughout the years of the surgeon’s practice. Because the discipline of orthopaedic surgery is progressing so rapidly, orthopedists must constantly update their knowledge and skills and be willing to critically appraise their own work. It is our goal to promote self-directed, life long learning skills. In our residency program, emphasis is placed on assisting each resident in gaining basic knowledge, clinical and surgical skills and then help them apply these principles in practice.

Our residents plan an active role in this educational process. Departmental teaching conferences are held each morning and each clinical service also holds a specialty conference during the week. Resident research participation is also a part of teaching and the learning process. Each resident is expected to complete two research projects with manuscripts for publication prior to graduation. There are approximately four educational slots each year, with our total program capacity of twenty training positions lasting five years. The application process if highly competitive.
