A Typical Residency Day

Generally, the residents' rotations take place in the morning hours. For example, during an orthopedics rotation with Dr. Vailas you will spend Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings following him through his office hours. On Monday and Wednesday you will observe with him in surgery. In the afternoon hours, you will be at a local high school working as their athletic trainer or covering our Safe Sports Network’s free drop-in clinic. Two to three days per week, you will spend an hour classroom session with the Residency Director and/or Program Preceptors.
