One of the strengths of the Program is the huge diversity in all orthopaedic subspecialties including spine, musculoskeletal oncology, upper extremity, sports, pediatrics, reconstruction and a level one trauma centre.
In addition to our level one trauma centre and our high-volume arthroplasty centres, our surgeons who are involved with the Montreal Canadiens, the Alouettes and the Montreal Impact sports teams. We also have a renowned spine program with high output research, as well as an innovative tumour/sarcoma program that does a lot of complex arthroplasty and the first of its kind to provide osseointegration. Moreover, we have the only Shriners Hospital for Children in Canada which offers residents unique exposure to rare and complex paediatric orthopaedic cases as well as access to an orthopaedic surgery specific simulation centre.
All off service rotations are done in the first year so residents have more time to focus on the complexities of orthopaedics. There are also numerous research labs located across the Orthopaedic Division which enables residents to be involved in research and an option to do a masters.
