Consider Orthopaedics

Of the many careers in medicine to choose from, none offers greater possibility than orthopaedics. As our population grows increasingly diverse, today's opportunities are especially relevant to women and minority candidates.

Choices & Opportunities

You will be able to create a practice that concentrates on sports medicine, pediatric orthopaedics, trauma, and prosthetics/orthotics, or focuses on a specific anatomical area like foot, hand, shoulder, spine, hip, or knee. You may select a single orthopaedic area or choose several. The variety of clinical choices and challenges you will face each day are endless!

Roadmap to Orthopaedics for Medical Students

The Roadmap to Orthopaedics for Medical Students was developed by the AAOS Resident Assembly to provide medical students who are interested in orthopaedics with tools and resources to help them stay on track throughout their medical school career and successfully match into an orthopaedic residency program.
