Residency Education : Resident Life

Resident Life

The orthopaedic surgery residents at The University of Miami / Jackson Memorial Hospital believe that we have one of the most cohesive and enjoyable collection of residents in the nation. We work hard serving the greater South Florida population and use our free time to enjoy all of the many amenities that Miami provides. Becoming elite orthopedic surgeons is what we strive for daily. We have all of the needed resources and mentors to allow us to surpass our goals. We invite you to come learn, work, and spend time with us during an externship away rotation so that you can fully experience this great opportunity. Miami is of course great place to visit, but we are confident you will understand why it is also an incredible place to train and live. Below is just a glimpse of the many actives and experiences we share together. This is Ortho Nation.
