The Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program curriculum is designed to prepare competent and ethical practitioners, and to comply with requirements to practice independently and to take and pass the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery (ABOS) specialty board certification examinations. The educational plan is designed to meet and exceed requirements of the ACGME, Orthopedic Residency Review Committee and ABOS.
The curriculum is centered on the Orthobullets
“365 Day Study Plan.” Monday through Friday reading topics are assigned to each resident, as well as links to journal articles used as a resource for further study. This enables all major areas and testable topics for boards and training exams to be covered each year. As well, optional weekend reading journals and book chapters are offered as a supplement to the core weekly material.
The program features a wide variety of rotations covering all required disciplines within Orthopedics. The rotations are led by prominent, fellowship-trained faculty, and most feature one-on-one learning. The breadth of exposure requires residents to be dispersed across the Atlanta Metro Area. Didactics are attended and delivered by a cadre of highly regarded experts in all 8 subspecialties of orthopedics. Opportunities include Chief Lectures, Trauma Rounds, Case Reports, Journal Club, M&M, Chairman’s Patient Safety Committee, Tumor Conference and Resident Lectures.
