Resident Scholarly Activities

Our residents are actively involved in cutting-edge research that helps define tomorrow's diagnosis and treatment methods. They collaborate with department faculty to improve patient outcomes and share their research with the orthopaedic community through peer-previewed journals, online journals, book chapters, and presentations at local, regional and national meetings. 

View our residents' recent publications, presentations and awards.
