The orthopaedic residency program at Summa Health System works to ensure that resident training is progressive, responsive to change and meets the orthopaedic needs of the community it serves. The orthopaedics residency program at Summa Health System has established itself as one of the elite community-based residency programs in the country.  Our program now selects four per year, and we have added fellowships in shoulder and primary care sports medicine in an effort to better serve the growing needs of patients in our region.

Our orthopaedic in-training examination scores are in the 98th percentile, meaning Summa Health System’s orthopaedic residents score better than of all residents tested nationwide.  Additionally, Summa Health System residents have maintained a high board passage rate following graduation.

By all measures, the orthopaedic residents of Summa Health System continue to excel.  The fellowships earned by Summa Orthopaedic residents demonstrates our commitment to excellence.
