Undergraduate Medical Teaching
As a teaching hospital for the University of new South Wales, the ORI has many undergraduate medical students working on orthopaedic projects. We also have training opportunities for international postgraduate surgical and sports medicine fellows.
This is a strong education program focusing on the needs of undergraduate students, registrars, general practitioners, orthopaedic surgeons and allied health professionals. Our undergraduate medical program conducted by consultants and registrars is a four week term, popular with the fourth year students.
Postgraduate and Registrar Education
Postgraduate and registrar education is organised around the 7am meetings held by our subspeciality services. Regular combined meetings are held with rheumatology, oncology, imaging and pathology. Thursday morning Grand Rounds feature local and international speakers and interesting clinical cases. Acquisition of skills is an important component of training. For this reason, we spend a lot ot time teaching our interns how to splint and plaster. The well known registrar skill sessions are a forum for our future orthopods to learn intricate surgical techniques
