Comprehensive Experience for Quality Patient Care

Our Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program prepares surgeons for successful careers by offering an invigorating and comprehensive training experience with numerous hands-on opportunities aimed at instilling confidence and expertise, underscored by quality didactic training.

Residents experience a broad scope of health care within the hospital and clinic settings and are encouraged to show leadership and participate in advancing the area of orthopedic surgery.

This five-year (60-month) post-graduate program is dually accredited through the AOA (American Osteopathic Association) and the ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education).” Our faculty consists of both DO and MD physicians and surgeons.

Our program is based at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, the largest tertiary care hospital within Samaritan Health Services. Rotations for this residency occur at a home base location, as well as other Samaritan locations and non-Samaritan institutions.
