Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program

Jack Hughston Memorial Hospital Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program

We are proud to announce the start of the Jack Hughston Memorial Hospital Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program on July 1, 2015.  Our program was approved in December 2014 and we selected 3 residents per year for the incoming intern (OGME1) and first year (OGME2) classes. The mission of the JHMH Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program is to provide a high quality training experience that prepares our resident physicians for comprehensive general or subspecialty orthopedics. The goal is achieved through a structured clinical and didactic educational curriculum that follows nationally established best practices as well as the commitment of faculty and our institutions to this teaching program. The residency training program follows a 5-year track based on osteopathic graduate medical education guidelines, rotating the residents schedule for specific training in all areas of general orthopedic surgery including sports medicine, hand and upper extremity, foot and ankle, pediatric orthopedics, orthopedic trauma, adult reconstruction, spine and rehabilitation.


The Hughston Foundation offers support in the areas of medical writing, medical illustrations, photography, and videography, and gives the residents an opportunity to become involved in on-going research studies. The Hughston Library provides support in the area of reference material and evidence-based literature using the library’s bibliotheca that focuses on orthopaedics and sports medicine. Additionally, residents have the opportunity for surgical training on Sawbones® and plastic models as well as cadaveric tissue in the center’s Surgical Education Center laboratories. The Hughston Surgical Education Center helps physicians to build and improve surgical skills and to develop new techniques in arthroscopic and open surgical procedures.
