The Heart of the Orthopaedic Residency Program: Didactic, Research and Surgical Education.
Residents at Hospital for Special Surgery are immersed in clinical and research activities. Educational conferences are held Monday through Friday at 7:30am, with additional meetings and conferences scheduled throughout the week. Similar conferences are held at affiliated hospitals. The orthopaedic resident is required to participate in basic or clinical research and is expected to present a paper in the last year of his/her residency. This program offers a unique opportunity to the orthopaedic resident to learn and develop his/her skills in a broad field of musculoskeletal research. The Hospital's full-time research staff includes experts in anatomy, biomechanics, biochemistry, immunology, molecular biology, pathology, veterinary surgery, and scintimetry. Hospital for Special Surgery maintains an entire facility-the Caspary Research Building that houses seven floors of offices and laboratories dedicated to investigational studies in musculoskeletal diseases. The Orthopaedic Residency Program offers residents the opportunity to gain a well-rounded surgical education and master the fundamentals of orthopaedic surgery. Following their training, many residents continue their education by taking a fellowship position.
