The orthopedic surgery residency program focuses on a variety of educational experiences. Each morning, there is a formal educational opportunity for the residents. Although the schedule varies, a typical week is as follows:

Monday :
X-ray rounds gives residents the chance to discuss and review cases that presented over the previous week and weekend. On call residents lead the case presentation and discuss their decision making process. Attendings oversee all sessions and help direct questions and teaching points. The X-ray rounds take place in the newly renovated orthopedic library and are televised via videoconference to both the St. Luke's and Mount Sinai West sites.

Residents review cadaver anatomy. General anatomy is lead by the PGY3. Special attention is reserved for hand anatomy. Hand anatomy is lead by one of the two CV Starr Hand Fellows who prepare dissections and present relevant articles relating to that days topic. Hand anatomy is supervised by Faculty from the prestigious CV Starr Hand Center.

Grand Rounds include case presentations, morbidity and mortality, and lectures, often times by visiting faculty.

Attending physicians, including faculty from radiology, anesthesia, physical therapy as well as residents lead lectures or interactive journal clubs discussing various topics. Journal clubs often take place outside of the hospital allowing residents and Attendings to interact in a less formal environment while still being able to discuss views on current literature.

Residents and Attendings practice OITE questions and discuss high yield topics.
