Rachel’s Answer

Orthopedics is competitive and you will need to do well in medical school to be accepted into this residency. However, upon completion of the residency, you should have no problem whatsoever finding an excellent job.

Ransi’s Answer

Orthopedics is always a popular residency coming out of med school so pretty competitive to get spots in good residencies. However if it’s your love, go for it. Don’t hold back because something is too competitive.

Richard’s Answer

Number of new orthopedic surgeons is determined by how many people complete the residency; and that number is set by the training programs. It is a very competitive specialty and only those with the best credentials in medical school can hope to gain admittance. Once the residency is completed there are plenty of jobs for new graduates.
