The Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program at IU School of Medicine offers a broad spectrum of orthopaedic experience through a comprehensive and competitive program. Orthopaedic Surgery residents build upon knowledge and skill sets obtained through medical school to prepare for the independent practice of clinical and academic orthopaedic surgery. Training focuses on clinical skills and compassionate patient care; achievement of professional competencies; acquisition of medical knowledge; and achievement of scholarly activity through research.
Department faculty are committed to helping each resident in orthopaedics to attain the maximum of their individual potential. In this program, both community practice and academic positions are available, allowing graduates to fully explore options for long-term career goals.
This residency training program offers two tracks of training: a five-year clinical track and a six-year research track. Each track is a separate match process and rank list. Applicants may apply to one or both tracks.
