Orthopaedic Residency Program

Residency Life

As a resident, it is mandatory that you live in Hospital housing, which the Hospital will provide to you. You may also apply for garage space. Housing and garage facilities for residents and their families are within walking distance of the hospital.

Salaries and Benefits
Salaries and fringe benefits are based on the cost of living in New York City and are competitive with those of other institutions.


Golf and Tennis Day
Take a day off to join attendings, residents and fellows for outdoor sports and dinner at a private estate – transportation will be provided.

Significant Others Dinner
HSS treats your spouses or significant others to an elegant dinner, organized by the Chief Residents’ “others.” They get to meet one another, and often form long-lasting friendships.

Alumni Association Cocktail Reception
You and a guest are invited to the Alumni Association Reception. Join us for some food, drinks and live music.

HSS Holiday Party
All HSS employees are invited to attend this huge affair, organized by Human Resources. Significant others and friends are welcome.

Resident/Fellow Skating Party at Rockefeller Center
Every year, the Residents and Fellows are invited to the famous skating rink at Rockefeller Center for a fun evening. There is a catered dinner and skating.
Children are welcome.

HSS Alumni Cocktail Party, AAOS Annual Meeting
Residents attending the Annual Academy Meeting are encouraged to join HSS attendings and alumni for a great evening.

Caspary Lodge
This Tudor estate in upstate New York was donated to HSS as a retreat, primarily for residents and fellows. Bring your family and friends and enjoy one of the three houses available. There is a very low fee to visit. Enjoy the pool, tennis court, and stunning view of the Catskill mountains.
