Information for Medical Students

Of the many careers in medicine to choose from, none offers greater possibility than orthopaedics.

Orthopaedic surgeons treat problems of the musculoskeletal system. Once devoted to the care of children with spine and limb deformities, orthopaedists now care for patients of all ages, from newborns with clubfeet to young athletes requiring arthroscopic surgery to older people with arthritis. 

Learn more about orthopaedics and why it may be the right specialty for you.
