As a graduate of HSS, you are among an illustrious group of alumni from a very special institution. In 1940, Dr. Philip D. Wilson, Sr. changed the name of the hospital to Hospital for Special Surgery, offering insight to the organization that was to become special in more ways than one. You are the roots of this oldest orthopaedic hospital in the country and are critical in making HSS the best hospital of its kind.
Education for physicians at Hospital for Special Surgery does not end with the completion of a residency or fellowship program. For ever-changing specialties such as orthopaedics, rheumatology, anesthesiology, radiology, physiatry, and related fields, there is considerable need for up-to-date educational resources. With over 1,500 members, our active Alumni Association spans the globe. It includes graduates of all our training programs and associate members who serve on the staff of the hospital. We have alumni in 33 foreign countries and 47 US states.
