The Orthopaedics Department holds monthly research meetings (usually on a Tuesday at 5:30 pm in Hutch 6062), which students are welcome to attend. For more information, please contact Dr. Cyriac or Dr. Medvedev.
The Orthopaedics Department has numerous research opportunities, including in clinical, basic science, biomechanical, and education related studies. They hold research meetings about every six weeks and any students interested in orthopaedics are welcome to attend. Students can find out about dates through the Orthopaedics Interest Group. They are strongly encouraged to join, as this group will provide them with a lot of information about orthopaedics. Additionally, Erica Moore (Residency Coordinator) can share this information with students.
Additionally, students may want to pursue research opportunities through the DeBakey Scholars Program. This program offers medical students the opportunity to pursue and complete a longitudinal, structured, closely supervised research experience culminating in a capstone presentation prior to graduation. For more information, contact Dr. Kenneth Mitchell.

Orthopaedics has a competitive application process. It is helpful to begin preparing early and organizing your research, extracurricular activities, etc.
Away rotations are critical.
Start preparing for orthopaedics early in your medical school career if you are interested. This ensures you have appropriate research and other experiences.
Establish contact with orthopaedic faculty members. Doing so is critical for getting strong letters of recommendation.
Available data suggests that a competitive candidate should apply to 50 programs in order to match.
