Here, the PGY-4 spends most of the day in the operating room, gaining the experience and skills, as well as mentoring the PGY-1's and 2's that rotate through.
The rest of the year comprises of further sub-specialty training including Hand Surgery, Sports Medicine, Shoulder/Elbow Surgery and Musculoskeletal Oncology.
