The Orthopedic Surgery Residency Training Program is designed to offer a broad exposure to orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation, both in the operative and non-operative treatment of patients, through evaluation of patients in the Emergency Room, clinics, wards, formal conferences, and research. Because of Burlington's unique geographic location, primary, secondary, and tertiary orthopedic care problems are readily available for residency training. The residency is approved for complete training in all aspects of orthopedic surgery as outlined by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery.
