Our goal is to enhance your education experience by offering a full time faculty of attending physicians who are nationally and internationally known in the field of Orthopaedic Surgery. Our learning environment emphasizes the six general competencies and fosters independent thinking. In addition, we have a strong research experience and are fortunate to have our own Orthopaedic Research Laboratory.
Four residents are selected each year to participate in this five-year Orthopaedic Surgery Program. The size of our program affords our residents a broad diversity and high volume in clinical experience.
