Residency Program


The Section of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Manitoba is dedicated to the training and successful graduation of qualified and competent orthopaedic surgeons. 

The Section of Orthopaedics at the University of Manitoba was initiated in 1907 with Dr. H.P.H. Galloway as the first Chairman.  The section has now 19 full-time faculty members who are involved in the teaching of residents, medical students and fellows.

The program involves several sites throughout the City of Winnipeg.  Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre, Pan Am Center and Concordia Hospital are the three main teaching facilities. 

During the five year program, residents will learn the principles and techniques of safe, effective, ethical and compassionate care of the patient.

Information on the application process to apply to our Program is available through the CaRMS website, under “Main Residency match (R1) – Program Information – Program Descriptions – By Discipline – Orthopaedic Surgery – University of Manitoba.
