The resident will complete a series of four core modules as well as one longitudinal capstone project. The core modules have required readings of evidence-based practice in orthopedics, as well as didactic lectures and homework including literature reviews, journal clubs, online presentations, or service-learning experiences. Each module will also have a hands-on mentoring component with a clinical expert in that area of practice. Mentoring will be conducted in-person and the participant will be the primary patient/client care provider for at least 100 hours of the 150 required mentoring hours for a residency.

Ortho 402 – Acute and IPR Considerations

For 12-month programs, this averages out to at least 3-5 hours of mentoring per week, additional hours will be encountered by resident’s being mentored during consultative activities, shadowing physicians and surgeries. The modules will also include unique learning opportunities for each module including shadowing rehabilitation professionals as well as members of the multidisciplinary team. Each module will culminate with a quiz or final project to demonstrate mastery of advanced concepts of orthopedic rehabilitation. This is a hybrid distance learning, online, and in-person laboratory and classroom experience. Computer and internet access are required. (Available through Beaumont Health but can be accessed at home
