Resident Education is the guiding principle in the Department of Orthopedics at Einstein Medical Center. The dynamics of the educational goals and objectives for the residency program are directed towards the development of an exceptional physician.
Our Orthopedic Residency Program is a five-year categorical program with the first year of postgraduate training consisting primarily of general surgery. The year ends with three months of orthopedic surgery as a basis for continued training. The PGY-1 schedule fully meets the new training requirements of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Residency Review Committee and the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. Einstein Medical Center is a major teaching affiliate of Jefferson Medical College/Thomas Jefferson University. Senior medical students from medical schools throughout Philadelphia and across the United States complete elective rotations in Einstein’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery.
A staff of 12 Board-Certified/Eligible and Fellowship trained Orthopedic surgeons anchors the teaching program, bringing residents their expertise in such diverse areas as: rheumatology, reconstructive surgery for arthritis, foot and ankle surgery, hand surgery, pediatric orthopedic surgery, spinal surgery, biomechanics, neuromuscular disorders, arthroscopy and sports medicine, shoulder and elbow surgery, joint replacement, orthopedic trauma, geriatrics, and orthopedic rehabilitation. Staff members hold academic appointments at Jefferson Medical College/Thomas Jefferson University.
Research is an integral component of orthopedic resident education at Einstein Medical Center. The Department of Orthopedic Surgery Bioengineering Laboratoryis fully equipped and located on the Einstein campus for basic science projects. The Department employs a full-time research scientist to oversee basic science and clinical research projects.
Graduates of our program have been accepted for subspecialty Fellowship training at prestigious institutions throughout the country.
