"The outstanding feature of this residency is its breadth. The program is a comprehensive approach to orthopedic education, both in terms of academics and hands-on orthopedic training. It encompasses every facet of orthopedics that practitioners must deal with when they are out practicing on their own"

Welcome to the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Orthopedic Surgery Residency Webpage.
The Orthopedic Surgery Residency program at PCOM is among the largest and best programs in the country. There are few, if any, osteopathic or allopathic orthopedic surgery programs in the country that can compete with the breadth and quality of orthopedic surgeons that train our residents at PCOM orthopedics. For 40 years, PCOM's training has provided residents the fundamentals of diagnosis and treatment for orthopedic conditions and the fracture care necessary to graduate and practice orthopedic surgery at a high level across the country. As a result, our graduates consistently gain acceptance to the finest and most competitive orthopedic surgery fellowships in the nation.
The program includes all the components needed to satisfy the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics and the American Osteopathic Association to become board-eligible after graduation. PCOM is currently in ACGME pre-accredidation and in the process of full initial accreditation. As of 2017, 121 residents have graduated from the PCOM Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program.
