Orthopedic Surgery Residency
The Department of Orthopedic Surgery at NYU Long Island School of Medicine offers a five-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)–accredited residency program with three residents in each year of training. The overall goal of our Orthopedic Surgery Residency is for residents to obtain the necessary knowledge and experience to successfully complete the certifying exams of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) and to enter the practice of orthopedic surgery as well-trained, highly competent orthopedic surgeons who exemplify the highest ideals of our profession.
Residents train alongside our expert faculty and staff, who are committed to creating and sustaining an optimal educational environment for acquiring knowledge and developing and honing technical skills in all aspects of orthopedic surgery. The excellence of our training program reflects the dedication of our faculty, who are committed to educating future leaders in the field and are recognized clinicians and scientists. The program prepares residents for successful careers in both academic and clinical orthopedic surgery.
