The University of Minnesota Medical School's Department of Orthopedic Surgery believes that leadership, scholarship, and education drive clinical excellence. This core belief guides our mission to achieve top outcomes and top patient experiences. Our vision is to be No. 1 in orthopedic treatment outcomes and patient experience.
Our medical student programs include orthopedic surgery rotations for both orthopedic and non-orthopedic-bound medical students. We also provide excellent and innovative graduate medical education for both residents and fellows. Our residency program emphasizes a core curriculum of knowledge, with the goal of producing competent, board-certified orthopedic surgeons.
We promote balance between work and personal life, and we value a diverse, exciting, and supportive educational environment.
Altogether, our programs lead the country on simulation teaching for orthopedic surgery skills as well as innovative competency testing. We promote lifelong orthopedic learning and we sponsor a robust Grand Rounds program with visiting professors and local scholars.
