The program prides itself on a strong research educational program focused on providing the skills needed to contribute as an academic orthopaedic traumatologist as well as to interpret the emerging literature in our ever changing field. Each fellow is required to submit the results of their research as a manuscript to a peer reviewed journal.
The division boasts a strong track record of success for fellow research projects as well as a high level of academic production overall. Our resources include 3 full time research coordinators, a well equipped biomechanics lab with full time biomechanics faculty dedicated to orthopedic trauma projects, a prospective trauma database, and an ongoing rich collaborative relationship with cutting-edge public health researchers within the Johns Hopkins School of Public Policy.
The division has produced 71 presentations during the last 5 OTA and AAOS meetings. We are involved in multiple prospective randomized trials which include our own trials as well as providing a leadership role in the newly formed DOD sponsored METRC trials. The division is proud to have dedicated faculty with over $3.5M of independent funding (DOD, OREF, industry and others) with significant experience in research and dedication to mentoring the next generation of orthopaedic academic traumatologists.
