Meet our 2022-2023 Residents

During the five-year HSS Orthopaedic Residency Program, residents master the fundamentals of orthopaedic surgery and develop broad skills in musculoskeletal research. From the day they arrive, HSS residents are immersed in educational conferences, and clinical and research activities. They begin honing basic surgery skills in year 1, both in the clinic and in the state-of-the-art Simulation Learning and Training Center (SLTC). With each successive year, residents advance their proficiency through rotations at nearby facilities and subspecialty rotations. All residents are required to conduct basic or clinical research and submit a research grant.
