Guide to Orthopedic Schools

If you’ve ever suffered a broken bone or injuries to your ligaments, muscles, tendons or joints, then you’ve likely seen an orthopedist for treatment.

An orthopedist is a medical professional who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of such injuries.

It is a long journey to becoming an orthopedist. Generally it requires a four-year undergraduate degree from an accredited school or college, followed by a four-year medical school degree. Then, you can expect to do a five-year residency program at a medical center.
