Excellent Residency

Program Review

Staff / Faculty / Chairman
Staff comprised of private attendings, so they are voluntary resident teachers. This allows for resident autonomy and responsibility in caring for orthopaedic patients.
Didactics / Teaching
Monday morning fracture conference. Thursday academic half-day including lectures, M&M, MRI conference, and grand rounds. Informal journal clubs at local restaurants.
Operating Experience
Unmatched operative experience of any program. Intern year, 50% of your time on the ortho service is spent in the operating room. PGY3-4s are primary surgeon on many cases.
Clinic Experience
Excellent clinical experience with early independence and responsibility. As an intern, you will be treating fractures in the emergency room and trauma bay, as well as managing the orthopaedic service.
Clinic is half-day per week and resident run, where you will see follow-ups and book your own patients for surgery.
Research Opportunities
Supportive faculty with dedicated research staff, quarterly research meeting and available statistician. Research is resident driven & there is a dedicated research rotation.
Residents
Tight-knit and supportive. Very high expectations of each other and the orthopaedic service.
Lifestyle
Many of the residents hang out outside of the hospital. 4 weeks of vacation per year.
Location / Housing
Most residents either walk to work or have a 10min drive. 1 hour to NYC or Philly. 30min to the beach.
Limitations
Research is not pushed on the residents, so it has to be independently driven.
Overall Rotation Experience / Conclusion
Excellent program with fantastic operative experience & close-knit residents.

Qualification

I am a current resident of this program.
Date of Rotation
2013-18
