Why did you choose UMMC?: As the only Level 1 trauma center in Mississippi, the UMMC Orthopaedic Program, almost by necessity, gives its residents a high level of operative experience early on. With an hour lecture almost every morning, the didactic schedule ensures that all residents develop and maintain a strong knowledge base. In addition to its unmatched operative and didactic experience, UMMC is without a doubt the most tightly knit group of residents and faculty that I encountered during interviews/away rotations. The faculty are truly devoted to shaping residents into compassionate and skilled surgeons. As an indicator of the UMMC culture, the senior residents are extremely confident in the OR, always willing to teach, and serve as excellent role models for the juniors. This made UMMC an easy choice to make.
