Our small yet robust academic program flourishes with support from the community and local physicians and provides excellent surgical training in orthopaedic surgery.  The information included here is designed to furnish a quick look into our program and we appreciate the opportunity to provide it to you.  

Our program is a dynamic five-year curriculum that includes twelve months of combined orthopaedic/general surgery education and four years of direct orthopaedic education. In addition to our staff we offer complex integration with the community where there is a wealth of superbly trained surgeons eager to teach.  During the PGY-3 year of training residents are afforded the privilege to rotate with the prestigious Dr. James Andrews at AREI, as an adjunct to your sports education with Dr. Pearsall covering division IA athletics at the University of South Alabama.  The University’s athletic program consists of seventeen USA Jaguars men’s and women’s teams that compete in the Sun Belt Conference.  In addition, there is opportunity for research and outreach around the globe to enhance your training. 

Our program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). During the five year program of residency training at the University of South Alabama, residents study the prevention of musculoskeletal diseases, disorders, and injuries and their treatment by medical, surgical and physical methods.

The University of South Alabama Department of Orthopaedic Surgery residency training program is one of the finest in the nation.  We accept three (PGY-1) residents each year and applications are only accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  All faculty members fully review and evaluate every application.  Candidate selection is based on letters of recommendation, publications and presentations, grades, board scores, and extracurricular activities.  Upon final review of the applications, the invitation for a personal interview is extended to approximately thirty young men and women from across the U.S.  Our program fully participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).  For details and complete information on how to apply to the University of South Alabama, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program, please contact your medical school.
