Welcome Message From Our Program Director
Thank you for your interest in the Aultman Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Program Coordinator Rebekah Hershiser at email@example.com or 330-363-4306.
The Aultman Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program is accredited by the AOA and is in pre-accreditation status with the ACGME. We plan to achieve full accreditation by 2020.
Our program curriculum includes a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient services designed to provide a well-rounded orthopaedic education. The residents receive the majority of their training here at Aultman Hospital, but also complete rotations at Grant Medical Center, Mercy Medical Center, Akron Children's Hospital, Summa Health Systems Akron City and Ohio Specialty Surgical Suites, LLC. Many of our faculty are graduates of the program and are committed to providing the best orthopaedic surgery education possible.
Aultman Hospital is a 682-bed tertiary hospital that has recently expanded in the cardiac, emergency and obstetrical services and is a Reuter’s Top 100 hospital. We have achieved national recognition for our outstanding clinical care. We are a resident-friendly educational setting and seek to provide individualized resident educational goals while providing an outstanding overall education. We work closely with our colleagues and residents in Family Medicine, OB/GYN, Internal Medicine, Radiology and Cardiology fellows and participate in joint-teaching conferences.
I look forward to discussing with you the educational opportunities our program has to offer. If you are interested in completing an audition rotation, please complete the Rotation Request Form found on the Audition Rotations tab, or contact Rebekah Hershiser.
