About This Program
For nearly 100 years, the University of Tennessee-Campbell Clinic Department of Orthopaedic Surgery has been proud to train orthopaedic surgeons from all over the country and all over the globe. Over 550 orthopaedic surgeons have trained at our institution and our graduates include 8 presidents of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, 9 directors of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, 4 presidents of the American Orthopaedic Association, and numerous presidents of subspecialty societies.
The program is designed to provide each resident with a well-balanced foundation in academic learning and practical clinical experience. Our residents train in all orthopaedic subspecialties, both as junior and senior residents, and our rotations combine an exposure to the academic/tertiary medical center environment as well as the private practice setting. This comprehensive approach offers the ability to see all subspecialties from different angles and maximizes true understanding of orthopaedic principles and their application.
