Conferences are organized in three formats
- Those conferences which take place at the primary institution which are required for all residents in the program. Conference time per week at the primary institution equals three hours.
- Those conferences which take place on each service solely for the residents on the service. An additional one to one and one half hours per week of conference is required on each service.
- Additional conferences held at Nationwide Children’s, for the residents rotating in that hospital at that time.

Mallory-Coleman Orthopaedic Research Day
In the department of orthopaedic surgery at the Ohio State University, we see mentoring as a tool to enhance the professional development of all team members. Orthopaedic faculty may have mentors within or outside the department, residents may have one another or a faculty member as mentors, and students may have residents or faculty as mentors. For residents, we have developed a specific mentoring program that evolves during their own evolution in training. For the first two years of their residency, our residents are assigned to an orthopaedic faculty mentor and are asked to check-in on a quarterly basis to monitor progress and help with any obstacles that he/she/they may have encountered. During the last 3 years of the resident’s training, the resident is encouraged to find a faculty mentor of their choosing—based on personality and/or subspecialty interest.
