Our Well-Rounded Residency Program
Our Orthopaedic Residency Program at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School (RNJMS) and its 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 quality 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 balanced, well-read and skillful surgeons who have the necessary skills and experience to choose either academic or private practices. This––as with all residency programs––will undergo change over time, but our commitment to train humane, broadminded and competent orthopaedic surgeons will not.
