Duke Orthopaedic Residency Program Ranking in the Top 5

On behalf of the Piedmont Society, we are delighted to report that the Duke Orthopaedic residency program is ranked fifth in the country! US news and World report teamed up with Doximity (a web based physician network) to rank residency programs in twenty specialties, including orthopaedics. A separate survey of medical students going into orthopaedics suggested that 50% of students will use the information from the ranking in selecting a residency program, showing the significance of having a high ranking. You can see the full report at: https://www.doximity.com/residency_navigator/programs#residency_specialty_id=51 (You may need to join Doximity to view the full report).

This high ranking is a testament to all of the Duke faculty, and of course to Bill Hardaker, for building such a strong residency program, with a fabulous reputation! Bill's tireless work in residency training over the past decades is responsible for this high rating, and Brian Brigman and Bill will be working together on residency training towards improving our already stellar reputation.

Please join us in congratulating Bill, and all of our faculty members on this incredible accomplishment.

All the best!
