The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Thomas Jefferson University has developed a balanced program of both didactic and group participation conferences to foster and encourage resident education.
Each Monday, conferences are lead by dedicated attending physicians in each subspecialty and resident participation is required. Residents actively participate at all levels of this conference program and take an active role in the education of medical students who rotate through the orthopaedic service.
On Thursdays, trauma conference is held. A set curriculum has been developed to cover all topics in orthopaedic trauma. OITE review typically follows the lecture. Here, residents go over questions seen in previous in-training exams.
All affiliate hospitals have their own independent conference schedules for the rotating residents.
