Orthopaedic surgery is one of the most exciting and dynamic specialties in medicine today. Patients rely on orthopaedic surgeons to help them maintain or restore musculoskeletal function, which is key to a person’s health and well-being. Orthopaedists interact with patients throughout their lives, ranging from pediatric patients to geriatrics, from minor fractures or sprains to life saving cancer surgery. This diverse practice puts orthopaedic surgeons in a unique and satisfying position of providing care that impacts many aspects of a person’s overall quality of life throughout the lifespan. It also provides a wide variety of practice opportunities from which the orthopaedic practitioner may choose.
Our orthopaedic surgery residency program is an ACGME approved, 5-year program that covers the scope of musculoskeletal medicine and surgery. Under the direction of dedicated faculty, residents receive a solid foundation for competent, well-educated orthopaedic surgeons, as well as develop skills that equip them for success! The program includes ample opportunities for clinical medicine, surgery, and research as well as the opportunity for personal growth and leadership.
