Residents In This Section

Residency Overview

We have four positions to offer: two five-year clinical positions and two six-year positions, during which those two residents will acquire research training and a master's degree through The Dartmouth Institute of Health Policy and Clinical Practice (TDI).

Following completion of the PGY1 year residents will spend four years rotating through the various subspecialties of orthopaedic surgery.  From PGY-2 through PGY-5, residents have at least two three-month rotations through each of six subspecialty teams: Trauma, Foot/Ankle/Sport, Joint Reconstruction, Spine, Upper Extremity and Pediatrics. Off-site rotations in pediatric orthopaedics at Boston Children’s Hospital and in orthopaedic oncology at the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital provide unique experiences in these orthopaedic subspecialties. A rotation at a local VA hospital as a PGY5 allows for an autonomous resident experience prior to graduation.
