      • Message
      • We appreciate and welcome your interest in the Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program at Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

        "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. The program provides strong experience in adult and pediatric general orthopedics in addition to many subspecialty areas such as joint replacement and reconstructive surgery, arthroscopy, sports medicine, spine, orthopedic trauma, hand, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, foot and ankle and neuromuscular disorders. The residents are offered invaluable education experience through their rotation schedule which provides them with the opportunity of spending the majority of their time one-on-one with an attending physician on his/her service.

        Research is an integral part of the resident experience. A dedicated research rotation of two months is a requirement of the educational curriculum. Faculty and residents are active in clinical and basic science research projects. Basic Science research takes place at Einstein Medical Center in the Orthopedic Surgery Basic Science laboratory under the directorship of S. Praveen Samuel, D.Eng.

        Einstein Medical Center residents are offered the breadth and depth of training available only at a major teaching medical center. As a Level 1 Regional Resource Trauma Center, the institution provides an exceptional opportunity to evaluate and treat major orthopedic trauma. Orthopedic residents gain additional residency training through our long-standing affiliations with several nationally and internationally renowned orthopedic and rehabilitation facilities.

        Our fully accredited categorical five-year program accepts two residents per year. As individuals, the Einstein Medical Center resident is as diverse in race, gender, educational background and thought as can be found. They are valued members of the Department.

        We feel that the greatest strength of the Orthopedic Surgery Program here at Einstein Medical Center is its RESIDENTS. We strive to make the resident experience at Einstein Medical Center an optimal, unique and challenging educational experience.
