The UBC Department of Orthopaedics

Excellence in teaching, research, and patient care

As part of one of the world’s top-ranked medical schools, the UBC Department of Orthopaedics has an international reputation for excellence in teaching, research, and patient care. The Department is the only one in Canada with departmental status within a Faculty of Medicine. This has permitted the development of 8 unique divisions within the Department, emphasizing the broad scope of the orthopaedic speciality.

Why UBC Orthopaedics? Learn from our internationally renowned faculty, and join a community of orthopaedic scholars. As a recognized leader in provincial engagement with faculty members distributed across British Columbia, the Department has created comprehensive and highly integrated research and training experiences throughout the province. Our alumni have established themselves as successful clinicians, educators, leaders, and innovators.

Outreach & Affiliations

The Branch for International Surgical Care (BISC) was created to advance surgical care in international health. It came about as a desire to build on the national interest in surgical care in international health and the realization of the strength of international activity that already exists among surgical members of the UBC faculty.
