    The residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Mississippi Medical Center is accredited by the American Medical Association and the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery for training in pediatric orthopedics, adult orthopedics, hand surgery, rehabilitation and trauma.

    Basic science education includes pathology, anatomy, biomechanics, microbiology, biomaterials, bone physiology and biochemistry. Four residents are accepted for the five-year program annually. Their training is supervised by 16 full-time faculty physicians, a number of part-time faculty and five full-time PhDs - trained scientists provide research support. 

    Faculty members in orthopedic research work directly with the residents on basic research skills and clinical projects. The program includes clinical rotations on orthopedic services at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and rotation with Mississippi Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center during your fourth year.  In addition, because of the program's interest in and emphasis on the AO method of internal fixation, all residents attend an AO/ASIF fracture fixation course during their first year.
