Orthopaedic Trauma

One of the major strengths of this residency program is its excellent exposure to orthopaedic trauma. The large volume of trauma allows for more junior residents to become involved in the surgical care of patients earlier than would be possible in a hospital with a lower volume of patients. To comply with the new resident duty hours guidelines, we have added additional resident manpower to the trauma team and have created a three-team system. This schedule also includes a 12-hour night float resident as well as orthopaedic trauma PA which allows for each resident on the trauma service to remain in compliance with all of the resident duty hours guidelines without sacrificing their clinical and surgical experience. Each of the four subspecialty trained faculty take night call at University Hospital and are available to provide subspecialty care for complex trauma related to their areas of expertise.
