Orthopedic Surgery Residency (Minnesota)
The five-year orthopedic surgery residency includes didactic and research training and extensive clinical experience. You will gradually assume increasing responsibility for patient care and will participate in trauma management throughout the entire residency. After you complete the program, you will be able to evaluate and treat most orthopedic conditions.
The most important sign of the success of any training program is how its graduates fare after they begin their careers.
