The orthopaedic surgery program has developed a very thorough didactic program that takes place throughout the entire academic year. Each morning the residents gather for morning report, which consists of patient census review, daily assignments and presentations on various topics including Osteopathic Principles and Practices. Anatomy is reviewed along with procedures.


  • Monday afternoons, the residents meet for OITE review. 
  • Tuesday mornings, the residents attend various lectures given at Main Campus by attending physicians and residents from 7:00 am until 10:30 am.
  • Wednesday mornings, Fracture Conference is held with the faculty after morning report. Radiographic studies are shown, and best treatment modalities are discussed. Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine education and skills are also a part of this weekly conference.
  • Journal Clubs are held monthly, either in house or sponsored by pharmaceutical or equipment representatives. The chief residents choose and distribute the articles.
  • Anatomy labs and skills labs are held often with support from equipment companies. Saw bone labs are held frequently to review hardware and instrumentation.  Anatomy labs with cadaveric specimens are available for dissection. Objective procedural competencies are completed on each resident during labs as a means to provide feedback for learning and improvement and to demonstrate the resident’s progression throughout their training program.


Osteopathic Principals and Practices (OPP) are integrated into the didactics, OMM is a part of Fracture Conference and quarterly OMM skills labs are held as well as while providing patient care. Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine labs are held under the direction of certified Neuromusculoskeletal specialists who will guide and assist residents in their techniques, provide feedback for improvement and complete competency forms. The selected techniques are determined by input from faculty and residents with suggestions proposed by the Neuromusculoskeletal director and faculty.
