The purpose of the Orthopedic Surgery Residency Training Program is to provide the resident with the knowledge, clinical, and surgical skills in all areas of orthopedic surgery necessary to ethically practice either academic or community orthopedic surgery at the highest possible level of competence by the completion of the training program. In 2016, the program achieved Initial Accreditation from the ACGME. The program is in consortium with Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine Statewide Campus System (MSUCOM-SCS) and provides educational programs consisting of structured lectures and a basic science course.

The resident has a unique opportunity to learn orthopedics in the operating room, patient clinics, hospital rounds, and in formal and informal conferences. Ongoing and continuing medical education is assured and accomplished by at least eight (8) hours of teaching conferences each week, attended by faculty, trainees, and students. The orthopedic resident has daily and continuous contact with the faculty in the clinics, operating room, rounds, teaching conferences, and individual rotation conferences.

The program is affiliated with Michigan State University, College of Osteopathic Medicine, Sparrow Hospital, Hayes Green Beach Hospital, WellSpan York Hospital, and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. The assigned rotations include McLaren Orthopedic Hospital; Sparrow Hospital; Hayes Green Beach Hospital; Trauma at WellSpan York Hospital (York, Pennsylvania); and Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital (Cincinnati, Ohio). Residents are provided with up to four (4) weeks for “fellowship interviewing” rotations during their fourth year of training.
