Orthopaedic Fellowships: Didactics

Conferences and Research Opportunities

About Our Educational Experience

HCMC offers numerous didactic opportunities. Fellows attend daily rounds, weekly journal clubs, and bimonthly Minneapolis-area collaboration meetings. Fellows are encouraged to attend the University of Minnesota Grand Rounds, and to develop a project for presentation at a national or regional scientific meeting or for publication. Participation at the annual HCMC Orthopaedic Trauma conference each fall is part of the experience.
