The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital is a major participant in the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program. A total of 50 resident physicians are involved in clinical care through the program, with approximately 18 residents at MGH at any one time. In addition, the MGH has approximately 14 clinical fellows involved in providing patient care. Combined Orthopaedic Grand Rounds and several teaching conferences are held weekly, biweekly and monthly.

The Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program provides education and training for residents at four major metropolitan hospitals: The Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, The Children’s Hospital and the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program's goal in orthopaedic education is to produce outstanding surgeons with a thorough understanding of the musculoskeletal system who are able to critically evaluate and implement new research and ideas.

Because of our diverse background, we believe the educational opportunity offered by our residency program will provide a firm foundation in the management of musculoskeletal problems and the complexities of an orthopaedic practice which should assist a graduate to rise to leadership roles within the orthopaedic community. We judge ourselves by the success of our graduates.

Residents come from many medical schools with highly varied social, ethnic and educational backgrounds. The common thread that unites those admitted to the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency is a history of excellence and achievement in some area.
