Orthopaedic Trauma Fellows at Regions Hospital currently work alongside four PGY-2 Residents and one Chief Resident from the The University of Minnesota Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program. The G2 Residents take all in-house primary call on a rotating basis. The PGY-2 residents rotate every 3 months. The Chief resident rotates every 6-7 weeks and is primarily assigned to the Arthroplasty and Elective Services. Fellows are expected to participate in the education of the PGY-2 Residents through Didactic Lectures as well as in the Clinic and Operating Room.
The Orthopaedic Department at Regions Hospital has a dedicated team to support the research projects and interests of the faculty and fellows. Our research staff has a wide range of skills and experience from database development and grant seeking to multi-center trials. They provide support and guidance through all phases of a study such as navigating through IRB approvals, protocol and budget development, coordinating patient enrollment and data collection, along with manuscript preparation and submission to journals.
