Education & Training
Led by Vice Chair and ResidencyProgram Director Kenneth Egol, MD,and Assistant Residency ProgramDirector Eric Strauss, MD, theDepartment’s educational programsinclude one of the largest and mostprestigious residency programs in the country as well as fellowship programs in every major orthopaedicsubspecialty. The Department alsooffers educationalopportunities forundergraduate students, medicalstudents and visiting orthopaedicsurgeons from the United States andaround the world.
The goals of our residency and fellowship training programs are the following: to provide surgeons with the tools to master the rigors of clinical training, to introduce students and trainees to the principles of sound orthopaedic science, and - most importantly - to provide them with an extensive patient care experience, in the operating room, in the emergency department and in many different outpatient settings. Along the way we allow individuals to grow and develop the skills to become future leaders in our field. We do this in an environment that promotes a diverse learning experience across all the major orthopaedic sub-specialties.
