Resident Responsibilities

The Orthopedic Surgical Residency Program at Botsford Hospital is affiliated with the State Wide Campus System at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Residents participate in the COGMET program at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Monthly meetings with various orthopedic topics are held at MSU and attendance is required.

Orthopedic residents are exposed to a daily orthopedic educational series. The information covered within this series is presented in the morning, Monday through Friday, and ranges from journal clubs and lectures to text reviews and board preparation.

Residents attend the quarterly orthopedic department meetings and are encouraged to attend the meetings of the Detroit Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons as well as the Michigan Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.

Journal clubs and specialty clubs are hosted by members of the Department as well as gold standard topics that are held at various times during the year.

First-year residents participate in an anatomy course held at Michigan State University in the first part of January. All residents are required to attend basic science lectures presented by COGMET. An on site skills lab is now available.
