Orthopaedic Surgery involves the study of diseases, disorders, and injuries to the musculoskeletal system and requires a comprehensive knowledge of anatomy, biology, mechanics, pathophysiology, and epidemiology, as well as their application to the musculoskeletal system. At Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, more than 75 active faculty members direct clinical and educational activities to our students, residents and fellows.
Providing care through four Chicago medical facilities (Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Ann & Robert H Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Jesse Brown Westside VA Medical Center, and John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital) to over 8,200 annual admissions, we offer unique access to a full range of educational experiences. Learn more about our educational opportunities via the links below.
