Program Overview

The Mercy Health St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital’s Orthopedic Residency Program is a five-year program with ACGME Initial Accreditation status. We are currently approved for 15 residency positions and accept three new residents per year. The goal of the Orthopedic Surgery Residency program is to provide quality training and education to physicians who desire to prepare themselves for the practice of orthopedic surgery. Our program is guided by experienced and dedicated faculty who provide a stimulating educational, clinical and academic environment with more than 150 years of combined experience. 

The progressive five-year program is intended to assure that the resident is well qualified to perform orthopedic surgical procedures and successfully assume orthopedic surgical practice at the end of the residency training. St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital is the only residency program located at an American College of Surgeons Level I Trauma Center between Cleveland and Pittsburgh. The hospital is licensed for 550 short-term and 30 long-term beds.
