Hoag Orthopedics, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was established
to provide higher education, research, and community outreach in the field
of musculoskeletal medicine. We offer post orthopedic residency fellowship
programs in Adult Reconstruction Hip & Knee, Spine Surgery, and an
ACGME accredited Sports Medicine program. While arthroplasty and spine
are not under the purview of the ACGME, we hold these programs’
curriculum to the same high standards. Our programs contain a robust educational
conference schedule including labs, pre/post op conferences, Grand Rounds,
journal clubs, morbidity and mortality conferences, and more.
Hoag Orthopedics is a premier provider for continuing and ongoing musculoskeletal
education. We welcome doctors, nurses, physician assistants, physical
therapists and other medical professionals in the community to attend
our monthly Grand Rounds sessions, lecture series, and our annual Orthopedic
Fellowship Research Day.
Our group practice and private practitioners have come together in the
spirit of camaraderie because of a shared interest in orthopedic education
and much needed research. There are over 20 physicians who are active
faculty to our three Fellowship programs. Together we provide a fertile
educational environment to train Hoag Orthopedics fellows, the elite specialty
surgeons of tomorrow.
Our drive to be the very best has enabled us to achieve and sustain an
unprecedented, higher level of orthopedic care. The hospital is committed
to having modern clinical pathways, nursing care, infection prevention
efforts and educational programs for physicians and ancillary services.
The faculty believe that fellows need to be exposed to this type of environment
to ensure successful outcomes for their patients.
