Education Labs

TRIA Fellowship

Our fellows get to experience 6-10 labs during their fellowship training, led by one of our Faculty.  We are one of the few facilities within the Midwest to offer in-house lab training.

University of Minnesota Orthopaedic Surgery Resident

We have a curriculum for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th year residents to get them each into the lab for shoulder arthroscopy and knee arthroscopy.  This has been a great program to increase confidence and surgical autonomy. 

Medical Students:

You are welcome to attend when there is a resident lab or fellows lab while on rotation at TRIA.
