Conferences and Research

Curriculum, Research and Activities Provide the Complete Education

To supplement hands-on experience, we offer a wide range of academic activities, such as journal clubs, daily conferences and labs.  Additionally, residents use clinical cases as springboards for reading and further investigation.

Although our curriculum is academically rigorous, the learning environment is collegial. Not only do residents share ideas, but they also work in a supportive atmosphere where everyone helps each other throughout the challenging journey of orthopedic residency

Activities outside the hospital environment include the journal club at faculty members’ homes, basketball scrimmages and the annual faculty-resident softball game. Additionally, many of the residents volunteer as team physicians for the local high school.
