Didactics include weekly conferences with the hand surgery faculty in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery (Grand Rounds, Mortality & Morbidity, Journal Club, Case Conference), monthly combined hand conferences including the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Plastic Surgery. Resources include the Cattell Memorial Library at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, online access to the Tufts University Hirsh Health Sciences Library, and laboratories for microsurgery, cadaver dissection and arthroscopy.
