Education

Orthopedic Surgery


The Eisenhower Orthopedic Surgery Residency Training Program offers four years of intensive study and practice. Entry is either at the internship level or at the PGY2 level after completion of one year's training in an ACGME-accredited orthopedic surgery internship. The curriculum provides for two residents at each level, with extensive exposure and practical experience in all phases of reconstructive surgery, spine surgery, sports medicine, hand surgery, pediatric orthopedics, orthopedic oncology, complex trauma, prosthetics, orthotics, and complete inpatient and outpatient care. Residents rotate for six months at the nationally renowned Scottish Rite Children's Hospital of Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia, where all aspects of pediatric orthopedics are covered. Trauma training is concentrated through rotations at the University of South Carolina and University Hospital, Augusta, Georgia.

In addition to these outside rotations, residents attend short courses in AO Basic Surgical Skills, Orthotics and Prosthetics, and Orthopedic Oncology.

Ample opportunity is given for research during each year of training. Three months of dedicated time is devoted to scholarly research activities. Basic science research is supported through a large Department of Clinical Investigation with capabilities for studying biomechanics, biomaterials, genetics, pharmacokinetics, and biostatistics. Opportunity for conducting clinical research protocols is available at any time during the course of training.
