Welcome to Geisinger Orthopaedics' northeast residency program!
The Geisinger Orthopaedic Surgery Northeast Residency develops board eligible, well-rounded physicians with comprehensive knowledge and surgical skill in the field of orthopaedic surgery, while serving our diverse northeast Pennsylvania community with compassion. The focus of the program will therefore be on caring for our community. While we see research and scholarly activity as critical means to improve our quality of care and we seek to inspire our trainees to pursue a lifetime of intellectual pursuits, the primary focus of our program is to produce orthopaedic surgeons who provide exceptional care to patients.
Geisinger, our sponsoring institution, similarly revolves around the importance of caring. This includes caring for our patients, members of our Geisinger family and our communities. The health system places great value on kindness, excellence, learning and innovation. Our Orthopaedic Surgery Northeast Residency will be built on precisely those core values. We strongly believe that the ability to care for patients derives from a surgeon’s knowledge base, surgical skill set and personal devotion to the patient. Each aspect of our educational program will therefore develop one or more of these attributes with the goal of producing a well-rounded, capable surgeon. The program consists of attending physicians from diverse training backgrounds and distinct stages of their careers that represent a broad array of the orthopaedic surgery subspecialties. Several unique training sites also offer a variety of experiences to our trainees. Additionally, northeast Pennsylvania provides exposure to patients from a wide array of backgrounds as the varied communities we serve range from urban to rural.
