Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program
The Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program at Oklahoma State University Center for Health
Sciences (OSU-CHS) is an ACGME pre-accredited training program that prepares residents
to practice orthopaedic surgery through education, research, and surgical skills.
Under the instruction of our skilled faculty, residents receive extensive hands-on
instruction in general orthopaedics such as:
- Adult Reconstruction
- Sports Medicine
- Spine surgery
- Hand and Upper Extremity surgery
- Foot and Ankle surgery
- Pediatric orthopaedics
There are eleven residency programs and nine fellowship programs at the Oklahoma State
University Medical Center (OSUMC), which train more than 150 residents annually. Together,
OSU Center for Health Sciences and the medical center have trained more than 2,000
physicians of which many are actively practicing in Oklahoma.
The inner urban location of the hospital with proximity to rural Oklahoma offers ample
opportunity to care for a wide variety of patients. The OSUMC serves as a level 3
trauma center and is home to Oklahoma’s top-ranked wound care and hyperbaric clinic.
Residents also gain experience at nearby Tulsa hospitals, including:
- St Francis Hospital
- St John Hospital
- Center for Orthopedic Reconstruction and Excellence
