We're shaping the future of orthopedics
At the Northwell Health Orthopaedic Institute, we're dedicated to educating tomorrow's orthopedic specialists and conducting medical research that will improve patient care for years to come.

Graduate medical education

Residency and fellowship opportunities are available for future medical professionals who are interested in orthopedic surgery. The primary goal of the graduate medical education (GME) programs is to train and graduate well-rounded, well-educated orthopedic surgeons and specialists. Comprehensive training is afforded in all subspecialty areas as mandated by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. Learn more about available opportunities below.

Education of medical students at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell provides our orthopedic residents and fellows with the latest clinical training. Participating in or leading continuing medical education courses and seminars also demonstrates our dedication to acquiring and sharing the latest orthopedic medical knowledge and technologies.

Continuing medical education

The Northwell Health Orthopaedic Institute offers an array of live activity professional education courses in partnership with the Northwell Health Office of Continuing Medical Education and the Northwell Health Rehabilitation Network, providing healthcare professionals in various regions with current evidence-based information of emerging trends and techniques in orthopedic care. All Northwell Health Orthopaedic Institute professional education activities are designed to provide attendees with a valuable, interactive learning experience and ultimately improve patient outcomes by identifying potential gaps in orthopedic knowledge and addressing these gaps by using a variety of learning formats.

The majority of these live activity professional education events are eligible for category 1 credit of the American Medical Association’s Physician’s Recognition Award and are offered at various Northwell Health institutions, including the Bioskills Education Center—a state-of-the-art education facility that allows for attendees to experience the latest technologies and surgical techniques in orthopedic operative care up close, without having to enter the operating room. Professional education programs are offered within Northwell hospitals, outpatient practice locations and other off-campus venues throughout the Long Island, Manhattan and Westchester areas.
