Founded in 2006, by the UCSF Department of Orthopaedic Surgery faculty and residents, UCSF is the first medical University to offer an international rotation for orthopaedic residents and is still the most robust and sought after PGY4 global resident program enabling to learn from our global partner sites through a one-month Global Elective Rotation abroad.
This video highlights IGOT's incredible team and the programs that are dramatically changing surgical outcomes.
As part of the departments surgical training program, fourth year residents are able to participate in a global elective that enables them to appreciate the need for global outreach. In coordination with IGOT (Institute for Global Orthopaedics & Traumatology), residents participate in educating other surgeons and learn to adapt their own skills into new settings with new, different and diverse patient populations.
