No structured curriculum exists to train orthopedics residents in ICS.Methods: Twenty-four out of thirty-five orthopedics residents completed the survey (69%). The survey had the following domains: [1] Demographics, [2] Communication Needs/Goals, and [3] Communication Barriers.Results: Eighty-three percent of respondents wanted to improve their communication skills and their patient's experience. Interns-PGY4s wanted to improve on similar specific communication skills. All residents desired training in conflict management.Conclusion: There is a need among orthopedics residents for a communication skills curriculum early in residency training, specifically in conflict management.
