Program Information

Residents per class

The Orthopaedic Residency Program at the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and Affiliated Hospitals is a five-year program. Our subspecialty coverage is complete and comprehensive. The mix of facilities provides a diversity of patients, environments, and pathology, which we feel is necessary for a well-rounded surgical education. Our research facility includes molecular, biomechanical, and biochemical laboratories and is an integral part of the residents' experience. More importantly, we emphasize the fundamentals of thinking and planning, as well as performing orthopaedic surgery. It is our goal to graduate well rounded, well-read, skillful surgeons who have the necessary skills and experience to choose either academic or private practices. This, as all residency programs, will undergo change over time, but our commitment to train humane, broadminded and competent orthopaedic surgeons will not.

Overview:

Our Residents have 2 month long rotations 6 times per year. We have dedicated 3-hour educational sessions every  Thursday morning and follow a reading schedule and year-long OrthoBullets study plan. In addition, journal club is held once per month during the Thursday dedicated educational session as well as once per month during respective rotations. Additionally, educational conferences and small group discussions are held weekly on respective services described below. Our Residents supplement their education by attending national training conferences such as the AO Basic course, AANA arthroscopy course, Miller Review Course, and the AAOS Annual Meeting.

Didactics:

Orthopaedic Trauma Conference
Every weekday morning from 6:45am-7:30am residents meet with the on-call attendings to present patients and review imaging from consults during the previous day.

Orthopaedic Oncology – Tumor Conference
A multidisciplinary tumor conference, consisting of musculoskeletal radiologists, pathologists, and orthopaedic oncologists is held every Thursday from 3:30 -4:30pm, during which patients’ history, imaging studies, and pathology slides are reviewed and discussed, and complex treatment regimens are planned.

Pediatric Orthopaedic Conference
Every Tuesday and Wednesday, the pediatric team and rotating students, as well as the spine/peds/call resident will gather over breakfast for an informal, but in-depth discussion of a pediatric orthopaedic topic of choice based on reading from Lovell & Winter Pediatric Orthopaedic Textbook.
