Curriculum

The curriculum is divided into a two-year cycle, which allows each resident to see the cycle twice as they proceed through their PGY1 to PGY5 years. There are five hours of core orthopedic educational conferences through the week, which are then supplemented by specific conferences by some of the subspecialty rotations. Local resident attendance is expected and monitored on each day’s schedule. On Thursdays, all residents are expected to convene and are relieved of clinical responsibilities.
