Program Structure

The UCSD Orthopaedic Residency Training Program strives for a balanced training experience, utilizing a variety of hospitals with predictable case loads, responsibilities, and opportunities. 

Resident rotations are aimed at maximizing the benefit of the training experience within the context of the areas of clinical strengths at the various participating institutions. 

 Additionally, to enhance understanding of the musculoskeletal system and interpretation of new ideas, a one year research fellowship, in addition to clinical training, is required.
