Program Review

Staff / Faculty / Chairman
Good teaching, both in and outside operating room.
Didactics / Teaching
Several opportunities for teaching and didactics done each week. Faculty are very involved and do majority of teaching. Thursday didactics can include arthroscopy lab/ anatomy lab along with didactics.
Operating Experience
One of the highlights of program. Very hands on and busy without being overwhelming.
Clinic Experience
Resident clinic- either general or peds- 1/2 day a week. Allows residents to take full ownership of patients, including the indications, surgery, and follow-up of patient.
Research Opportunities
Can be difficult to get projects started
Residents
Good group of residents, close-knot, work well together, and enjoy being around each other. Seniors also take time to teach juniors.
Lifestyle
Work hard, but not overwhelmed.
Location / Housing
In New Brunswick- certainly not the best location, but easy access to NYC and Philadelphia. Several housing options from apartments to houses.
Limitations
Research
Overall Rotation Experience / Conclusion
Well-rounded program for both the operating and clinical experience. Lots of operating volume in all subspecialties and very hands-on. Residents come out extremely well prepared for fellowship and practice.
