Orthopedic Surgery

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Westchester Medical Center currently has 15 residents, and offers three 5-year training positions. The Residency Program is fully accredited by the residency review committee, and offers a well-rounded clinical and academic experience in each of the orthopaedic subspecialties.

The training program is affiliated with hospitals in Manhattan, Stamford CT, and the Hudson River Valley. Residents in this program work with dedicated full-time faculty and voluntary faculty members. Residents benefit from rotations at Westchester Medical Center (a level one trauma center), Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital (a dedicated pediatric hospital on the main campus), Stamford Hospital (a level two community hospital), Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital (a busy joint arthroplasty center), and Mount Sinai Hospital (a tertiary care referral facility) located in New York City.

Medical Student Rotation

3rd Year Rotations

The department of orthopaedics offers 2-week selective rotations to 3rd year New York Medical College students. Students may choose to rotate in the adult or pediatric divisions.

4th Year Rotations

New York Medical College offers one-month sub-internships in orthopaedic surgery from July through November for NYMC and visiting students. The Department's objective is to provide students with an opportunity to gain experience in the evaluation and treatment of general and subspecialty orthopaedics in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. Medical students are expected to be actively involved in morning rounds, surgical cases, and emergency room activities including casting and splinting.

At the end of the rotation, medical students are asked to present a 15-minute lecture on a topic of their choice to the residents and Attending staff. For further inquiry please contact our Residency Coordinator, Jennifer Francis at 914-493-8743.
