Education & Training
Led by Vice Chair and Residency Program Director Kenneth Egol, MD, and Assistant Residency Program Director Eric Strauss, MD, the Department’s educational programs include one of the largest and most prestigious residency programs in the country as well as fellowship programs in every major orthopaedic subspecialty. The Department also offers educational opportunities for undergraduate students, medical students and visiting orthopaedic surgeons from the United States and around 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.
