Orthopedic Surgery Residency
It is my pleasure to extend to you a warm welcome to the Henry Ford Hospital/Wayne State University Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program!
The primary purpose of our residency training program is to cultivate well-rounded, skilled, knowledgeable, compassionate and ethical orthopaedic surgeons. A graduate from this program will be able to begin independent practice without further subspecialty training. However, as is now the current trend in orthopaedics, the majority of our residents pursue subspecialty training and, in recent years, have been able to secure some of the most prestigious fellowships in the country. We are quite proud of what each of our graduates has accomplished.
Our program is approved for six residents in each class and fully accredited through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Our educational curriculum is designed to meet all of the requirements to begin the process of American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery certification upon graduation.
The culture of our program has been firmly established over the past decade. It is my goal to continue the tradition of excellence in resident education established by my predecessors: Dr. Vasilios (Bill) Moutzouros and our chairman, Dr. Theodore W. Parsons III.
This is an exciting time to be involved in surgical education, and Henry Ford is positioned at the leading edge in working to create these changes. We have all of the infrastructure that it takes to make a top-notch training program (a Level I trauma center and regional tertiary care referral center, an outstanding suburban community hospital, state-of-the-art simulation center, exceptional research facilities, etc.), but it is the people who define our program. Our faculty and staff all have a true passion for education, research and service, and we look for this same dedication in our residents.
This is a time of great growth and renewed prosperity in Detroit and Southeast Michigan. Our downtown and midtown areas are bustling with energy. I hope you have a chance to look around our city and see some of the renaissance for yourself.
More importantly, I encourage you to spend some time with our faculty, staff and residents. Get to know who we are and how you might fit into our family.
