The UCSF Fresno Orthopaedic Residency Program is dedicated to training residents who can execute sound clinical judgment and operative technique, with a firm foundation in basic science and evidence-based medicine.
Most rotations are completed at Community Regional Medical Center and Family Healthcare Network in downtown Fresno, as well as Clovis Community Medical Center and University Orthopaedic Associates in Clovis. Second-year residents have a three-month Tumor/Oncology rotation at UCSF main campus in San Francisco.
Residents are given two six-week dedicated Research rotations in their second and third year. Third- and fourth-year residents are offered elective rotations working directly with an attending in the sub-specialty of their choice. By the residents’ third year, they will have experienced at least one rotation of each subspeciality, to help decide what electives and possible fellowship experiences they are interested in.
