Our residency 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, acquiring the analytical skills to understand and apply the advances in orthopaedic 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 orthopaedic 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.
Orthopaedic residents trained at Boston Medical Center have many educational opportunities, including gaining skills in evidence-based care and critical analysis consistently through experiences in clinics, lectures, journal clubs, and grand rounds. Furthermore, our residents have the opportunity to attend national and international conferences with the support of the residency program.
