A Message from our Program Director:

The University of Ottawa Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program provides Canadian and International medical graduates with comprehensive training across all subspecialties of Orthopedic Surgery. The five year residency training program is based on a strong clinical teaching delivered primarily at The Ottawa Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.  Our residents are also exposed to outstanding collaborative basic science and clinical research opportunities. Moreover, our learning environment draws on innovative learning opportunities including surgical simulation, international surgical opportunities and weekly didactic orthopedic seminars along with outstanding clinical teachers. Ultimately, our residents complete their residency by obtaining certification from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and secure prestigious fellowships, both domestically and internationally. Our network of alumni includes outstanding clinicians and surgical leaders providing orthopedic care across every continent.
