Orthopaedic Surgery

If you missed the opportunity to participate in Giving Day, it’s not too late to support Orthopaedic Surgery! You may make a gift anytime using our general online giving form: Donation - Brilliant Future: The Campaign for UCI Secure giving 

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the UCI School of Medicine is focused on shaping the future of medicine in our community and beyond. From diagnosis to treatment, we are discovering and utilizing the latest techniques and technology to care for our patients. Our clinician-scientists are developing novel solutions to alleviate suffering, aid healing, speed rehabilitation and improve surgical outcomes. Our faculty are devoted to training the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons and researchers to be world leaders and provide the highest quality orthopaedic care. 

The UCI orthopaedic surgery residency program is a national leader of educational innovation and resident training. Our cadaveric training lab provides hands-on experience prior to ever entering an operating room. Additionally, our state-of-the-art technology offers safe and accessible orthopaedic training outside of the O.R. and without involving patients directly.

Orthopaedic residents at UCI gain substantial experience in the diagnosis, management and treatment of all orthopaedic issues and are well-prepared to enter academic medicine or private practice. Your gift on Giving Day will help ensure the next generation of orthopaedic surgery residents will represent the absolute best medicine has to offer. Your generosity will enhance our ability to provide our trainees with a world-class education and innovative research opportunities. 

With your support, we will help our residents become tomorrow’s leaders, well-equipped to provide comprehensive and compassionate care for all patient populations. Thank you for investing in future orthopaedic surgeons through your support on Giving Day!
