Academic and Medical Training Programs
Washington University's Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is proud to educate and train tomorrow’s orthopedic leaders. As national leaders in clinical care, education and research, we offer our trainees a diverse and supportive learning environment and opportunities to acquire knowledge and skills in advanced technology and the latest treatment modalities.
The Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program at Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital is a leader in training young physicians. Our supportive learning environment provide our residents with opportunities to acquire knowledge to evaluate and treat a variety of orthopaedic clinical problems, provide compassionate care, and demonstrate ethical behavior in the practice of orthopaedic surgery.
Washington University Orthopedics offer fellowship training in 10 sub-specialties. Each fellow receives one-on-one mentorship to foster growth as an independent surgeon. With our large patient volumes and association with Barnes-Jewish Hospital, fellows receive an outstanding operative experience. As one of the three components of our mission as an academic health care leader, fellows participate in enriching research endeavors and graduate ready to begin a career in academic medicine or private practice.
Our goal is to provide exceptional education and to inspire the next generation of orthopedic providers. Our externship program provides medical students, in their final year of study, exposure to a broad cross-section of orthopaedic domains through inpatient, outpatient, tutorial and didactic experiences.
