Cooper University Hospital, the dominant tertiary referral hospital in Southern New Jersey, has a long tradition of orthopaedic surgery education.
For more than 30 years, orthopaedic surgery residents have received top-level training at Cooper in areas such as trauma, sports medicine, spine, adult reconstruction, tumor and hand and microvascular surgery. In 2013, the ACGME approved Cooper University Hospital to start an independent orthopaedic surgery residency with two residents a year.
This program will follow the requirements of the ACGME and will be a five-year educational experience.
