In July 2002, the American Osteopathic Association granted the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery the approval to begin training residents.  Since the tradition of training qualified residents began, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at RUHS has recruited academically orientated faculties with diversified educational backgrounds, orthopaedic training and expertise in the various orthopaedic subspecialties.
