About Us:
The ETSU Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program is a five-year ACGME accredited residency program that fulfills all the criteria for the successful graduate to sit for Part I of their Board examination given by either the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) or the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedic Surgery (AOBOS).

Residents rotate at 3 main hospitals: Johnson City Medical Center, Holston Valley Medical Center, and Bristol Regional Medical Center, as well as at several outpatient surgery centers and orthopedic practices across the Tri-Cities area (Johnson City, Kingsport, and Bristol, TN). Residents also rotate at Shriners Hospital for Children in Greenville, SC for 6 months during the 3rd year of training.

Our faculty are trained in a variety of specialties and many are fellowship trained in the following areas: hand and upper extremity, sports medicine, trauma, spine, pediatric orthopedics, hip and knee replacement, and foot & ankle.

Our Mission Statement:
The mission of the ETSU Orthopaedic Residency Program is to provide a high quality training experience that prepares our resident physicians for comprehensive general or sub-specialty orthopaedics. This goal is achieved through a structured clinical and didactic educational curriculum that follows nationally established best practices as well as the commitment of faculty and their institutions to this teaching program. The culmination of this mission is to have imparted the orthopaedic knowledge and skills to the trainee, to achieve the highest level of care for their future patients.
