Welcome to the University of Missouri Department of Orthopaedic Surgery Residency program. We are happy that you are taking the time to look at our program more closely and hope that the information we’ve provided will give you a better sense of who we are.
With our institution’s support of our department and departmental support of our program, we have been afforded opportunities to enhance our educational curriculum that continue to push us ahead of the curve. A perfect example of this is our new 115,500-square-foot orthopaedic hospital, the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute (MOI), which houses 7 operating rooms, 55 clinic exam rooms and 20 in-patient beds with further expansion approved over the next 3 years. This allows a one-stop shop for our patients and state-of-the art facilities and equipment to which you will be exposed.
We also provide a curriculum that includes cadaveric dissection, pathology review and indications conferences. As part of our visiting professors program, residents are given the opportunity to learn from and network with world-renowned leaders in orthopaedics. Our goal is to provide one-on-one teaching while keeping a global perspective in mind.
This department and residency program has been reshaped over the last few years and what has developed is a consensus that, second only to the care of our patients, resident education is a priority.
