Our program develops physicians who are well-rounded orthopaedic surgeons, possessing the technical skills to perform all orthopaedic surgical procedures at a superior level and, equally important, the analytical skills to understand and apply the advances in orthopedic surgery that will shape the future of our specialty. We expect that many of our residents will choose further study to develop expertise in a defined area of orthopedic surgery. Graduates of our program have been exceptionally successful in their quest for fellowship positions. However, it is the goal of the program to train orthopaedic surgeons so they are prepared to enter orthopaedic practice immediately upon completion of the residency.
Residents training in Boston have many educational opportunities, including many local conferences and lectures. In addition to those courses offered in the area, residents have the opportunity to attend orthopaedic conferences around the country with the support of the residency program.
