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.
