The Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School is devoted to producing surgeons whose credentials for teaching, service and research are excellent. A superb, dedicated teaching staff has been effective in accomplishing these goals. The suburban location of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and its affiliate teaching institution St. Peter's Medical Center provide an environment that satisfies the varied cultural, athletic and educational needs of the medical community.

The graduated residents are located geographically throughout the United States. They have remained on the cutting edge of orthopedic knowledge and have made numerous contributions to the orthopedic literature. They are fulfilling our mission by maintaining excellence in orthopedic surgery within their communities.
