Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program
The Orthopedic Residency Training Program is a five-year program that encompasses general orthopedics. The program is approved for 20 residency positions by the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics (AOAO) and the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). Timothy Ackerman, D.O., is the program director and Steven DeLuca, D.O., is the assistant trainer.
The goals of our five-year training program are to provide residents with the highest level of education possible, motivation and the opportunity to gain the skills necessary to become an outstanding orthopedic surgeon. We have an extremely large volume of surgical cases. Residents routinely log over 2500 cases by the time they graduate.
Our affiliations allow residents to do rotations at major tertiary care facilities. This program will satisfy the basic training requirement when applying for future certification in orthopedic surgery through the American Osteopathic Association via the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedic Surgery.
