Welcome to our Department!
The Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School is devoted to producing honest and ethical surgeons with excellent credentials for teaching, service and research. Our superb, privademic teaching staff, has been instrumental in accomplishing this goal. The confluence of a high volume and breadth of surgical cases, with an excellent clinical office experience results in an extremely comprehensive education for our trainees. Working at a Level 1 trauma center and working with NCAA Division 1 athletic programs provides a tremendous experience for the residents. Our busy pediatric orthopaedic service provides exposure to this population during all five years of residency training. The suburban location of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and its affiliate teaching institution St. Peter’s University Hospital provide an environment that satisfies the varied cultural, athletic and educational needs for a strong foundational education in orthopaedic surgery.
