Orthopaedic Traumatology

At the conclusion of the residency rotation on this service, the graduate is expected to be proficient in the management of orthopaedic trauma problems encountered in the general practice of orthopaedics. It is important to recognize that competency as a physician extends beyond medical knowledge and direct patient care. Therefore, evaluations for the Orthopaedic Trauma Service will include not only these competencies, but also demonstration of abilities in medical knowledge and patient care, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, practice-based learning and improvement, and systems-based practice. At the start of the rotation, the resident must contact the trauma secretary to schedule a beginning, mid-rotation, and end of the rotation final evaluation.
