Program Information

Fifth year residents


The goals and objectives of the residency program are to educate residents through 5 years of training – 6 months as a general surgical intern and 4.5 years in orthopedic surgery residency – in the art and science of orthopedic surgery. The primary objective is to teach residents to be competent, caring, and technically proficient physicians. These goals are attained through a carefully created educational program; becoming proficient in the physical examination and diagnosis of patients; and progressively increasing responsibility and autonomy in the non-operative and operative management of patients.
