Orthopaedic Surgery

Research

All residents are involved in clinical or basic science research and are required to prepare
 a paper suitable for presentation and publication. Three months are provided to work on a
 research project. Residents may develop their own projects or may be assigned to a project
 initiated by a faculty member. All orthopaedic faculty members are involved in clinical or
 basic science research projects in all of the subspecialty areas of Orthopaedic Surgery.

The UNT Health Science Center provides collaborative opportunities with other
 departments, access to cadavers and animal labs, and laboratory space with an MTS
 machine for biomechanical testing.
