Residents participate in many journal clubs throughout the year. Most notably, each month a residency-wide journal club is held at a local restaurant to discuss new, landmark studies. Additional subspecialty journal clubs may also be held on a monthly or biweekly basis. Through these academic discussion with the faculty and their colleagues, residents become facile at critically appraising the scientific literature and applying it to their surgical acumen.
Arthroscopy wet lab sessions
Faculty-led, arthroscopy sessions on utilizing cadaveric extremity specimens. Sessions help familiarize residents with the use of arthroscopic cameras, tools, implants and techniques.
A week-long session where residents work alongside with orthopaedic faculty to practice various surgical approaches and procedures on cadaveric specimens. In this low-risk and safe environment, residents obtain a fully hands-on experience to learn the critical thinking and surgical techniques to achieve reproducible surgical outcomes. Previous sessions have included total hip arthroplasty, intramedullary femoral nail placement, total shoulder arthroplasty, distal radius plate fixation, trigger finger releases, and more.
