AdventHealth Orlando and Rothman Orthopaedics establish Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program to train future physician leaders and enhance orthopedic care in Central Florida

In July 2023, AdventHealth Orlando welcomed its first residents for a newly accredited graduate medical education (GME) program in Orthopedic Surgery. Over five years of training, a total of 30 orthopedic residents will comprise the Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program, a partnership with Rothman Orthopaedics. The program earned initial accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in 2022, and further extends the graduate medical education offerings that are available at AdventHealth Orlando, including established physician residencies in diagnostic radiology, general pediatrics, general surgery, internal medicine and OB/GYN.

The Rothman Orthopaedics at AdventHealth Florida Orthopedic Residency Program follows a mentorship-based model where residents will focus on learning from sub-specialty faculty experts within numerous disciplines, including trauma and fracture care, orthopedic sports medicine, shoulder and elbow, hand and wrist, hip and knee, foot and ankle, spine, pediatric orthopedics and orthopedic oncology, amongst others. The curriculum focuses on AdventHealth’s mission of delivering whole-person care and encompasses sub-specialty didactic and Bio Skills curricula, surgical simulation training, clinical and non-clinical research platforms, and innovation programs. Rotations will follow a graduated clinical and operative schedule.

“As part of one of the most widely respected orthopedic surgery groups in the country, we strive to become one of the premier orthopedic training programs in the country,” shares Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at Rothman Orthopaedics Florida and AdventHealth Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program Director Daryl C. Osbahr, MD. “We want to train the future thought leaders in orthopedics not only within our Central Florida community, but nationally and internationally. We’re especially excited that four of our six current residents grew up in Florida and are passionate about advancing orthopedic care in our state.”

In addition to the new Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program, AdventHealth Orlando and Rothman Orthopaedics are planning to launch a Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship in 2024. They are also working collaboratively to support other AdventHealth educational residencies from an orthopedic perspective.
