Mentors to Inspire You.
At Vanderbilt, we believe that an apprenticeship approach to resident education creates future leaders in orthopaedic surgery. And because we’re confident your residency will be enriched by working closely with top-of-field surgeons, highly skilled clinicians will guide your residency as mentors — offering constant support as you work to develop your analytic thinking, creative problem solving and surgical skills. Sharing their diverse training and experience, your mentors will help you navigate each new experience and hone your ability to care for patients with respect and compassion.
