Department of Orthopaedics at The Ohio State University offers the following track in the NRMP Match:
|Orthopaedic Surgery||Five-Year Categorical Program||1566260C0||5|
|Orthopaedic Surgery – Research||Six-Year Categorical Program||1566260C1||1|
The Five-year categorical program includes a PGY1 year of rotations which consist primarily of rotations in general surgery. The remaining four orthopaedic years consist of rotations in all subspecialty areas of orthopaedics. These areas include foot and ankle surgery, hand surgery, general orthopaedics, joint reconstruction, musculoskeletal oncology, orthopaedic trauma, pediatric orthopaedics, spine surgery, and sports medicine.
Formal teaching sessions are an integral component of the training program. Residents are required to attend approximately four hours of formal conferences each week. The majority of these conferences take place on Friday mornings at OSU. All residents are required to attend these Friday morning sessions regardless of where they are rotating at the time. Additionally, all residents are excused from all duties in order to attend. In addition to the Friday morning conferences, several educational conferences take place each week at the affiliated hospitals. Residents who are rotating at those hospitals are required to attend.
Research is also an important component of the five-year orthopaedic residency program. Each resident in the program is required to complete, present, and submit a manuscript for publication before leaving the program.
