A key component of the CBC is the Orthopaedic Boot Camp, which has won international awards for its novel approach to teaching technical skills in the first month of training. This model of intense training has proven so successful that it has been adopted nationally and internationally.
Our program benefits from a world class faculty who are dedicated to resident education. Each resident’s education is tailored to fit their career goals and academic/research interests. The program is continually updated to incorporate resident input, technological advances, and to maintain an optimal service-to-education balance. Residents are supported and encouraged to participate actively in all Divisional educational activities. Our residents universally feel that the program puts their educational interests first and foremost and allows them to successfully aspire to their career goals, whether they are academic or community-based.
