Our 5-year residency program is structured with an orthopaedic internship and 4 years of rotation-based orthopaedics.

The first year of the orthopaedic residency (postgraduate year 1 (PGY-1)) at the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a diverse 12-month experience that has been developed in accordance with the regulations of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery to ensure a balanced year for the orthopaedic resident.

This includes a month-long formal surgical skills educational program that is run in collaboration with other local institutions. The PGY-1 year is structured to ensure compliance with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) duty hour rules.

A performance consistent with the high standards of the Department of Orthopaedics is expected of every orthopaedic PGY-1 resident during the internship year.

PGY-1 residents must satisfactorily complete the requirements of the internship year as a prerequisite to advancement as a PGY-2 in the orthopaedic residency program. This includes passing the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step III Examination and successfully completing the written in-training examination in surgery and orthopaedics.

Rotations are performed at the following locations:
