How We Learn

Dr. Rodner teaching a studentThe ultimate goal is to develop excellent orthopaedic surgeons who are well-versed in the literature, understand the role of operative and non-operative care, and provide excellent, compassionate patient care. Clinical rotations expose the residents to all orthopaedic subspecialties providing them comprehensive, first-hand experience in the evaluation and management of patients with a variety of orthopaedic problems.

Our didactic program is one of the most comprehensive in the nation. It includes a weekly core curriculum lecture series, given by attending faculty or visiting professors, and bi-monthly bioskills labs.
