Conferences and rounds provide vivid examples of procedures and problems. Each conference involves a specific topic, with assigned reading. Our program is based on the philosophy that daily formal teaching builds a solid foundation of orthopaedic knowledge. Conferences on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings are devoted to orthopaedic topics organized chronologically by body part. On Tuesday mornings, each Division has its own Indications Conference, so the entire team can discuss any interesting surgical indications. These conferences, held by each subspecialty, are designed for attendings and residents on that rotation.
Fracture sign-out. Every day, at the end of the morning conference, there is a review of all x-rays from the previous night in the Emergency Room.
