Department of Orthopaedic Surgery

Graduate Medical Education

Over the last 50 years, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery of Albert Einstein College of Medicine has developed one of the largest and best training programs in the nation.

Our residents are graduate physicians from the finest medicals schools in the US. The residency program has produced over 500 Orthopaedic surgeons and at the current time has 30 young surgeons participating in the program. Residents learn and become competent in General Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine, Arthroplasty, Foot and Ankle Surgery, Hand Surgery, Spine and Spinal Deformity Surgery, Orthopaedic Trauma, Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, Pediatric Orthopaedics, and Musculoskeletal Tumor Surgery.

Located in the Bronx, New York, our hospitals provide Orthopaedic care for a majority of the 1.6 million people that live and work in this New York City borough. The economic, racial, and national diversity of the population provides a significant amount of common and rare Orthopaedic pathology. This experience, combined with being just miles outside of the center of New York City, makes this program a very special place to spend five years completeing an Orthopaedic surgery residency.
