Orthopaedic Surgery

 The goal of the orthopaedic surgery residency program is to provide an educational experience and environment so that at the completion of his/her training the physician has sufficient professional knowledge, skills, and the ability to practice competently and independently. To achieve this goal the following components are necessary:

Graduated Responsibility
The resident is allowed increasing responsibility for patient evaluation and management as clinical and surgical skills are acquired. The resident is supervised for the entire residency, but the amount of supervision varies with the stage of the resident’s training, degree of competence as judged by the faculty and the complexity of the task.

Case Material
An adequate volume and diversity of clinical exposure is available to provide a complete and effective educational experience. Residents perform an average of 1,250 cases during their orthopaedic training. This includes an appropriate number of cases in the following areas: trauma, adult reconstruction, pediatric, hand, foot and ankle, sports medicine, spine, oncology and metabolic disorders.

Faculty Support
The faculty at all participating institutions possess general and subspecialty expertise and provide instruction in a wide spectrum of orthopaedic disciplines; they serve as mentors and role models with respect to moral, ethical and patient care issues.

Residents are assigned a mentor for their first two years of training and then choose an advisor at the beginning of their third year of training. The mentor/advisor functions as a liaison between the department and the resident. Any problems that the resident may encounter can be brought to his/her mentor/advisor for assistance. The mentor/advisor also represents the resident at the semi-annual resident evaluation meetings and provides constructive criticism and guidance to the resident after these meetings.
