Education

A message from our Director of Education:

The University of Ottawa Division of Orthopedics is a leader in Education from undergraduate to the clinician in practice.  The division welcomes both local and visiting undergraduates seeking to learn more about Orthopedics and the training opportunities Ottawa provides. Ottawa’s training program provides an unparalleled training experience boasting an excellent fellowship and job placement rate. We also provide advanced fellowship training in all Subspecialties and opportunities to link this with masters in sciences or medical education. In addition to weekly resident teaching we have dedicated subspecialty rounds for both staff and trainees.  These rounds focus on improving the standard of care and continued quality improvement.  The weekly fracture care rounds and monthly grand rounds have associated online quizzes and are accredited by the Royal College. Our education program includes monthly subspecialty journal clubs encouraging the sharing of thoughts between staff and trainees.  During the academic year we also invite monthly subspecialty thought leaders (national and international) as visiting professors to participate in rounds, motor skills training or journal club. Our Division also runs a variety of Continuing  Professional education programs in the skills lab to share and pass on expertise locally and internationally.  Our goal is the improve the Orthopaedic experience for our patients and yours.  As an academic program, our focus is on patient care and continually looking for ways to improve patient care in the future by way of a strong education.
