St. Joseph Warren Hospital, Trumbull County's first Level III Trauma Center, is the home site of the Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program.
The program, which is led by Residency Director K. Brian Williams, D.O., operates under the auspices of the American Osteopathic Association and the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics.
Located just 12 miles away,St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital, the only Level I trauma center between Cleveland and Pittsburgh, is closely affiliated with the Orthopedic Surgery Residency program and offers a variety of specialized rotations to the orthopedic resident. Both facilities provide state-of-the-art operating facilities into their operating room suites.
The goal of the Orthopedic Surgery Residency program is to provide quality training and education to osteopathic physicians who desire to prepare themselves for the practice of orthopedic surgery. The program provides the basic requirements for eventual certification in orthopedic surgery by the American Osteopathic Association through the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery.
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.
