The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery welcomes you. We hope you will find our web site helpful as you search for the best residency program suited to your needs. We take great pride in graduating highly qualified orthopaedic surgeons from our program. Our residents train at three Level I trauma centers in Kansas City and receive a broad education in all areas of orthopaedics, treating patients across a spectrum of all age groups with great cultural diversity.
Our application process is highly competitive and we encourage you to apply if you are committed to acquiring the best in orthopaedic education. As you check out our web site, be sure to click on Residents and meet those who are currently working to maintain our exemplary standards. They come from across the country, and when they leave us, they move on to equally competitive, highly-respected fellowship programs.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
Mark Bernhardt, M.D.
Professor and Chairman, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
James W. Bogener, M.D.
