Welcome to the University of Chicago Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation Medicine.

The University of Chicago Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program is designed and devoted to the education of capable, skilled, thoughtful, and moral orthopaedic surgeons who will be great contributors to the field. Through active engagement between both educators and learners, the residents are engaged in a well-rounded educational experience that encompasses the acquisition of both clinical knowledge and surgical skills as well experience in orthopaedic research, patient safety, and quality.  Built on a rich tradition and culture of resident-centered education, the Residency Program allows for the progressive transition from a young physician to a well-educated, competent, autonomous orthopaedic surgeon capable of practicing confidently, safely, and ethically within the many facets of high quality patient-centered health care.
