Orthopedic Surgery training program overview
As a site for the University of Minnesota Orthopaedic Surgery residency program, the Orthopedics and Sports Medicine department at Regions Hospital trains all first-, second- and fifth-year residents and has six residents onsite at any given time.
Our residents provide first-call coverage for all consults and participate in quality-improvement work, ongoing clinical and basic science research and regularly scheduled didactics. These residents also are teachers themselves, providing direct hands-on learning opportunities for our University of Minnesota medical students.
Fellows also shape our program. Currently, we have fellows training in orthopedic trauma, adult reconstruction and trauma and geriatric orthopedics. These fellows contribute not only to the care of our patients, but to the education of our residents and students.
We look forward to incorporating more simulation, simulated bone fixation workshop and cadaver work into our curriculum. We strive to maintain our position as a highly rated rotation site for our residents.
