Research Opportunity
Ample. We work closely with statisticians at both WBAMC and TTUHSC, and have access to multiple research databases. We maintain close connections with surgeons across both our city and the country, and can help residents work on projects of interest. Many past residents have served as reviewers or editors for leading orthopaedic journals. All efforts are made to ensure that residents are not forced to do research. Rather, we strive to foster an environment which promotes critical thinking and supports residents in their scholarly pursuits.
