Welcome to the Orthopaedic Surgery Interest Group (OSIG) Website! As a student interest group at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, we strive to provide our members with all of the elements necessary to explore the specialty of Orthopaedic Surgery. To navigate our site, please use the links provided on the left hand side of your screen.
The Orthopaedic Surgery Interest Group at the University of Colorado, School of Medicine (CUOSIG), was created in 2008 to address medical student interest in orthopaedics. Since our inception, we have worked closely with the University of Colorado Department of Orthopaedic Surgery to provide educational experiences, research opportunities and facilitate faculty mentorship for medical students wishing to pursue a career in orthopaedics.
CUOSIG programming centers around three primary events that are supplemented with additional events throughout the academic year. More information about our events can be found here.
CUOSIG serves as a liaison between students and faculty, helping facilitate student collaboration with department faculty on active, on-going research. More information about research opportunities in orthopaedics can be found here.
CUOSIG provides both peer-to-peer and faculty mentorship to medical students interested in orthopaedics. Event-attending members gain exposure to current residents and faculty. CUOSIG also offers more formal advising via Dr. Frank Scott, our faculty mentor, as well as student perspective from senior CUOSIG members on how to successfully navigate the transition from medical school into orthopaedic surgery residency.
Being a member of CUOSIG is as simple as joining our group email list. Members receive priority to events with limited capacity. You may also follow our events via Twitter @CUOSIG or Facebook.
Thank you for your interest in CUOSIG.
