Orthopedic Surgery Residency
The University of Arizona College of Medicine ranks among the top medical schools in the nation and is home to one of the few remaining true orthopedic mentorship programs.
Our residents work one-on-one with attending mentors in a uniquely friendly, family-oriented atmosphere that is both rigorous and rewarding.

Applications must be received through ERAS by November 1.
