Program Review

Staff / Faculty / Chairman
All staff are dedicated to teaching. Dr. Schwartz is an amazing traumatologist and you will get a great experience on her service. I am going into arthroplasty and feel that there is an incredible wealth of experience with our 3 attendings.

Dr. Bukata is our chair, previously at UCLA. She is very approachable and a strong leader for the department.
Didactics / Teaching
Blocked dedicated grand rounds and teaching every Wednesday from 7 - 1130. This is a huge strength of the program to be able to learn together every week. Faculty lectures and a cadaver lab are a part of this.
Operating Experience
Top tier. 3-4 OR days a week on most services. Plenty of cases and every single subspecialty is well represented.
Clinic Experience
Similar to everywhere else I imagine. Medical staff help keep it on time.
Research Opportunities
Numerous opportunities at Rady, and with the MSK research group next door. Everything from basic science, translational, epidemiology and in between.
Residents
ONe of the strengths. Great culture here and camaraderie. They look after each other.
Lifestyle
Very well balanced. Residents work very hard, but still have social lives.
Location / Housing
Its in San Diego. I can't imagine another program that can even come close. It is the best place to train.
Limitations
Still looking
