Orthopaedic Surgery


The mission of the NUHS Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Programme is to provide our residents with the knowledge and skills, both clinical and surgical, in all areas of orthopaedic surgery necessary to produce orthopaedic surgeons who are technically competent, able to provide care of the highest quality to all orthopaedic patients presenting to the National University Health System, and knowledgeable of the literature in the field of orthopaedic surgery by the completion of the Training Program.

The goal of the Programme is to produce orthopaedic surgeons who are not only technically competent but compassionate, knowledgeable of the literature in the field of orthopaedic surgery, demonstrating the highest ethical standards, keen to seek clinical & basic science solutions in the interest of providing the highest quality holistic care to their patients and striving to become leaders in the field.

This mission & goal will be accomplished via a rigorous and comprehensive Programme which will ensure a more than adequate clinical exposure, the opportunity to perform surgical procedures under the supervision & guidance of master orthopaedic surgeons as well as an opportunity to pursue scholarly activities in research and make contributions to the field of orthopaedic knowledge.
