Stanford Healthcare Orthopaedic Residency
    The Stanford Orthopaedic residency program's curriculum is designed around real world clinical practice, utilizing the resources of our academic medical institution. Each module is designed to seamlessly progress from the spine to the extremities and incorporate joint and region-specific advanced theoretical and clinical experience. Every attempt will be made to coordinate the resident’s caseload to allow for experiential and mentored learning while receiving the theoretical and evidenced based didactic components of the program to apply in the clinic. Mentors will be mentoring during the months of their lectures to allow for mentoring in the region and content specific components of their area of clinical expertise. This will allow for congruency between the theoretical and evidenced based components of their didactic experience coordinating with their clinical and mentorship experiences.

    During the week, residents will receive mentorship from faculty content experts (4-5 hrs per week) as well as primary mentors (1 hr per week) which they will be assigned, associated journal club, anatomy lab modules through the Stanford Medical School and physician rounds for the specific regions being studied. In addition, time will be given throughout the year to work on directed learning opportunities and attendance at orthopedic, and sports medicine grand rounds and meetings. Initially through the first half of the program, mentorship will be increased to 5 hours per week to provide an enhanced educational and learning experience, preparing the resident for clinical rigor as their residency time progresses.
