Outpatient Experience - Orthopaedic Surgery at MedStar Georgetown

Critical to each resident's educational experience (although not always apparent to them at the time) is the exposure to the orthopaedic outpatient. Not only is this an important part of orthopaedic practice, but it also provides the resident with the much needed opportunity to experience continuity of care, including preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative care.

Each resident despite rotation location spends at least two half days per week in an outpatient venue. The experiences are tightly structured in order that the residents sees patients he or she has seen in the hospital setting.
