Orthopedic Surgery Residency is a training program with progressive responsibilities and duties. At the first year level, the resident will be a member of a surgical team and be expected to conduct an evaluation of a patient, develop a differential diagnosis, participate actively in proposed procedures, and present at conferences. Attending surgeons closely supervise the residents of all levels on their teams. First year residents in Orthopedic Surgery are expected to attend all the educational activities scheduled for Orthopedic Residents. One lecture a week, which is devoted specifically to topics of interest and presented at a level for those early in their training, is also required of first year residents.
