The University of Virginia Department of Orthopaedic Surgery seeks to promote lifelong learning in Orthopaedics.  Our faculty, fellows, and residents participate in daily didactics and interactive conferences to foster an environment of education and the persistent pursuit of a deeper understanding of the conditions and injuries that affect our patients.  Our world-renowned faculty members each individually contributes extensively to our didactic program sharing their expertise with other faculty, our fellows, residents, and medical students.  We frequently host internationally-known leaders in Orthopaedic Surgery to Charlottesville as Visiting Professors to expand our knowledge and fortify our position on the front lines of Orthopaedics.
