The department strongly believes that research is one of the avenues to help improve the practice of orthopaedics. The residents, with the guidance from our consultants, generate research papers and research protocols that are approved by the Philippine General Hospital Ethics Review Board. Our consultants themselves produce research papers together with other orthopaedic surgeons from other hospitals.
Currently, we are one of the leading institutions that publish research papers both nationally and internationally. To add to this, one of our consultants was able to publish a textbook that is currently distributed worldwide. Some of the residents had the opportunity to present their research papers in conferences abroad, United States and Australia.
Currently, our department has invested in an internet-based data collection form to enhance the research output of the department. We aim to publish more of our work in the years to come.
