Thank you for your interest in the Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program here at Prisma Health. The Orthopaedic Surgery program is a fully accredited ACGME program that accepts four categorical residents per year. Our three major strengths include our residents, our staff and our location.

Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program
We have a diverse group of residents that hail from all four corners of the United States that have interesting life stories that have taken many of them off of the beaten path into business startups, wildlife adventures and cross-country bike rides before starting their residency careers.
They have developed a palpably strong family nature that is easily evident to all. If they choose to continue their postgraduate education, we place our residents into the finest fellowships in the country. We also are proud to be one of the few programs that continue to train residents that are comfortable enough to pursue private practice without a fellowship.
The second strength is our staff. We offer board-certified staff in all of the subspecialties of orthopedic surgery right here at Prisma Health. With nearly 30 operative orthopedic and neurosurgeons involved with our resident education, we have struck the perfect balance of academic subspecialists and the community generalist. Our staff benefits include:

Here, residents enjoy buying their own homes, short travel times to mountains, foothills, the beach and four distinct seasons.
We hope that we have piqued your interest in our program and that you will come to explore what we have to offer.
