The Mount Carmel Health System Orthopedic Residency Training Program has been in existence since 1945. It is a 5-year program that is fully accredited by the ACGME. The residency program offers two positions per year and participates in the National Residency Match Program (NRMP).
Residents are delegated progressively greater responsibilities as their skills and judgment grow. During PGY-5, participants operate relatively independently as chief residents for procedures for which they have demonstrated capabilities.
The unique strength of our orthopedic residency at Mount Carmel is rooted in the high caliber of individuals who match with our program. Each prospective candidate is encouraged to explore the program and to meet with attending faculty at Mount Carmel. Our aim is to select residents who fit the mission and philosophy of the institution and to provide them with a rich and rewarding educational experience.
Upon completion of the Mount Carmel Orthopedic Residency Training Program, the graduate will possess a solid knowledge base and will have developed sound decision-making and technical skills. We strive to provide a well-rounded educational experience in all aspects of orthopedic surgery so that our graduates are prepared to directly enter an orthopedic practice. Most residents have chosen to pursue fellowship training and have been very successful in obtaining competitive positions in a variety of orthopedic subspecialties.
