Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery’s Research focuses on patient-related outcomes. This approach, using Patient Reported Outcome Measurement System (PROMIS) standards and through collaboration with the Institute for Public Health and Medicine’s Center for Patient-Centered Outcomes, serves our day-to-day interactions with our patients.
Our basic science research includes work in regenerative technology, including stem cell therapy and nanotechnology. More research information can be found through our faculty profiles.
Resident Research Opportunities
Two rotations dedicated to research are included in the PGY-3 curriculum in order to encourage academic involvement and productivity. Residents can explore research in laboratory and basic animal studies; biomechanical properties of various fixation devices and implants; clinical trials and treatment comparisons; and all types of outcomes research. Senior residentsmust present a scientific paper at the annual spring Resident-Alumni Thesis Day.
