Brown University, Alpert Medical School

Department of Orthopaedics

The Brown University Alpert Medical School Department of Orthopaedics is one of the top orthopaedic programs in the nation. In addition to one of the most selective residency programs, the department boasts fellowship programs in 7 orthopaedic subspecialties.


The Department of Orthopaedics provides world-class patient care, education, and research. Home to an $11.3 million Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) grant for skeletal health and repair, the Department's external research funding totals more than $30 million.


As one of the ten most NIH/VA funded orthopaedic departments in the country, we pride ourselves on our research, our world-class faculty, hospitals, and on the educational opportunities we provide for our students and residents alike. Over half of our residents get university affiliations after completing fellowship training, so they become extremely well prepared. Furthermore, on one campus, we have everything from a level one Trauma Center and Pediatric Hospital to the most complex reconstruction orthopaedics, all done and taught by subspecialists.
