Welcome to Our Orthopaedic Surgery Residency - McLaren Flint Program

  • A Message from the Program Director
    Ajay Srivastava, MD

    The McLaren Flint Orthopaedic Surgery Residency program is dedicated to graduate skilled orthopedic surgeons who will become future leaders in their field. We are a five-year, allopathic program based at McLaren Flint Medical Center. We are affiliated with the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and are fully accredited by the ACGME.

    Established in 1973, we provide residents broad exposure to orthopaedic surgery in a community-based setting. Being a medium-sized program allows for a close-knit relationship between our residents and faculty members with a great one-to-one learning experience. Our faculty work hard to graduate astute clinicians and skilled surgeons.

    As a resident you will rotate through all the orthopaedic sub-specialties including trauma, adult reconstruction, pediatrics, spine, hand and upper extremity, oncology, sports medicine, shoulder and elbow, foot and ankle, and general orthopaedics. Our program offers protected daily didactics, weekly grand rounds conference and monthly journal clubs to cover the entire range of subspecialties, plus skills labs and cadaveric sessions offer additional hands-on teaching.

    McLaren Flint is the sponsoring institution where the residents spend most of their time. Other rotation locations include the level-one trauma Hurley Medical Center, where residents train throughout all five years of the program. Other away clinical rotations include four months of pediatric orthopaedics at Shriners Hospital for Children in Spokane, Washington; and six weeks of orthopedic oncology at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. We also have a robust research program in collaboration with Kettering University in Flint.

    Our core faculty work closely with residents and are dedicated to helping them develop clinical skills, surgical skills, and cultivate research projects with progressive autonomy and responsibility. Upon graduation, our graduates are fully prepared to enter practice or fellowship and have the mentorship of our faculty along the way.

    The majority of our graduates seek fellowships and have matched positions in a range of specialties at New York University, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Virginia Commonwealth University, Hospital for Special Surgery, Christine M. Kleinert Institute, William Beaumont Hospital, University of Chicago, Campbell Clinic, Vanderbilt University, University of Alabama, The Ohio State University, Detroit Medical Center, Orlando Health, and many others.
