Message from the Associate Program Director
The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery at McMaster University has a robust research environment with a broad spectrum of opportunities for resident research. Clinical Trials Research and Evidence-Based Methodology are key strengths of the Division. Our independent research lab at the Juravinski Cancer Centre studies primary and metastatic bone tumours through cell and molecular biology techniques with an emphasis on translational research. Large prospective databases are ongoing for arthroplasty and trauma patients.
The Surgeon-Scientist Program at McMaster University allows residents to obtain an advanced degree during an extended residency period. In the context of this rich and fertile research environment, the publication volume and research funding held by members of the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery are ranked at the world-class level.
Dr. Michelle Ghert
