Abstract

Many educators have expressed concern with regard to the current status of orthopaedic resident education and the future orthopaedic workforce. It is essential that orthopaedic educators, the ABOS, and the Orthopaedic Residency Review Committee thoughtfully and collaboratively move forward with analysis of resident education as opposed to reacting to mandated change. In addition, we must commit ourselves to enhancement of our skills as educators, critical analysis of the competencies necessary for the 21st-century orthopaedist, and development of an orthopaedic curriculum that will allow us to train an outstanding workforce in the years ahead in the most efficient manner. Great opportunity exists for us, but we must take the lead!
