Consider Orthopaedics

Picture yourself behind the mask of the many careers in medicine to choose from, none offers greater possibility than orthopaedics. As our population grows increasingly diverse, today's opportunities are especially relevant to women and minority candidates.

A variety of choices and opportunities

You will be able to create a practice that concentrates on sports medicine, pediatric orthopaedics, trauma, and prosthetics/orthotics, or focuses on a specific anatomical area like foot, hand, shoulder, spine, hip, or knee. You may select a single orthopaedic area or choose several. The variety of clinical choices and challenges you will face each day are endless!
