Our residents benefit from the rich experience of presenting their research projects in a formal setting.
The Eugene R. Mindell, MD, Orthopaedic Residency Scientific Program is the graduation ceremony for our residents.
We invite a guest lecturer to speak at each ceremony, giving our trainees yet another exposure to a renowned orthopaedics expert. We’ve hosted multiple speakers from the Mayo Clinic, as well as guests from the Georgia Orthopaedic Trauma Institute and the Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation at the San Antonio Military Medical Center.
The ceremony is a two-day event that takes place in June. As a trainee in our residency program, you’ll spend the first day presenting interesting cases and watching your peers’ presentations. These presentations will align with our guest lecturer’s field of interest.
If you complete a research project in the academic year leading up to the graduation ceremony, you’ll present your project on the second day of the graduation event.
Presenting your work is a prerequisite for graduation. First- through fourth-year residents present, and fifth-year residents may present if necessary.
We hold annual practice presentations in May, giving you the opportunity to feel well-prepared for the graduation presentation.
Trainees’ presentation titles have included:
We offer a yearly award of $500 for the best resident research presentation.
A research committee and the visiting professor will vote on the presentation via ballot.
We promote a warm, friendly atmosphere. Our Eugene R. Mindell, MD, Orthopaedic Residency Scientific Program includes:
Our current residents report that these dinners help foster a sense of camaraderie.
