Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program

University of Saskatchewan - College of Medicine

Faculty:College of Medicine
Field of Study:Orthopedics/Orthopedic Surgery
Length:5 Year(s)


Our program has had great success in training orthopedic surgery residents to become fully specialized in their field. The program has an extensive academic schedule but also allows significant exposure clinically and surgically for residents throughout their five years of training. The program teaches the CanMEDS roles and is designed based on the objectives of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in Orthopedic Surgery.

Throughout the academic year there are extensive rounds that are pre-set and well-attended. These are mandatory for residents to attend with protected time. All of the subspecialty areas of orthopedic surgery are part of the training program and residents spend rotations in these areas throughout the residency program. Rotations have a favorable resident faculty ratio allowing close interaction with faculty in the clinical and surgical settings. Overall, residents are well trained to be a competent orthopedic surgeon at the time of their completion of the program. Also, there has been a very high success rate in passing the Royal College examinations in Orthopedic Surgery.
