Curriculum

A didactic curriculum for basic and clinical sciences is taught by the faculty with an emphasis on resident participation. Information is kept on a resident education website.

To supplement these sessions, grand rounds are conducted each Thursday. Several additional courses in each subspecialty, as well as in pathology, anatomy and OITE review are given throughout the year.

Each participating service hospital (The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Bayview, Union Memorial) also has its own series of subspecialty teaching conferences. Residents attend the conferences appropriate to each rotation.

In addition, two three-hour Thursday-morning teaching sessions per month are held in the International Center for Orthopaedic Advancement, which combines a surgical dissection suite with an instrument development lab. Here residents become familiar with implants, devices and instruments for orthopaedic surgery and receive hands-on experience with sawbones and cadavers.
