Program Review

Didactics/Teaching Remarkable. Didactic lectures are 5 days a week. It includes: 30-45 minute fracture conference reviewing the previous days cases, and interesting OR cases; mainly focused on the junior residents..every case seen by the resident must be presented by that particular resident, and they will be asked a plethora of questions about classification (fracture), treatments, complications, anatomy. Questions are NOT malignant. After fracture conference there is a lecture given by a resident (each month the chief resident compiles a book of various interesting pertinent articles from JAAOS, JBJS, books, etc. Again, a lot of benign pimping in this session as well. If exams are a measure of success...the average OITE last two years has been over 90%. Review sessions are held daily as the exam comes closer. Fridays are grand rounds, presentations are M&M, interesting cases, Research etc. The Chairman is usually present, and is very involved with education.
Operating Experience Top Notch. As the junior resident you will learn to operate very early. Most residents finish with over 2000 cases. The more aggressive the more cases you get.
Clinic Experience Each attending has their own clinic (ie hand clinic ,foot and ankle, spine, joints etc). Residents are expected to attend, diagnose, and formulate their own treatment plan.
Research Opportunities New wonderful addition, complete with biomechanical testing, cell culture labs. Residents are free to research what they desire, it is challenging in that the resident is INTIMATELY involved in research. There are no grad students etc doing your work. The benefit is, any research you publish ,the department will sponsor you to present it. (Past residents have gone to Puerto Rico, Bahamas, California, Italy, Vail, Colorado, etc).
Residents This is a family. Everyone knows everyone's strengths and weaknesses. Senior residents are always available, and look forward to teaching juniors operative skills, how to assess patients in the ED etc.
Lifestyle work hard, play hard.
Location/Housing North Philadelphia. Mainly penetrating/blunt trauma. Level I center.
Limitations none seen.
Overall Rotation Experience/Conclusion Bottom line: 2 residents a year, a wealth of OR/clinical experience. The ability to grow wings very early on and make decisions. Bright YOUNG attendings that are energetic, and want to create the next generation of orthopaedic surgeon. I ranked them #1 out of over 25 regrets whatsoever.


I am a current resident of this program.
Date of Rotation 07/2007
