Graduation Projects

Sherman Coleman Graduation Seminar


The entire Department of Orthopaedics gathers once each year, in early June, to celebrate the graduating residents and fellows and hold an academic seminar to highlight resident research. Graduating PGY5s present their research for discussion by the faculty and other residents.  Each resident finishing the PGY2 year presents the plans developed with a mentoring team to the Department for constructive criticism and program polishing. The event also hosts a distinguished guest orthopaedic surgeon, who gives lectures and participates in the discussion of the completed and proposed research projects.
