Where Do UC Davis Residents Go After Graduation

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at UC Davis was established in 1969 by Dr. Paul R. Lipscomb. The Orthopaedic Residency program at UC Davis has been successfully training residents since then. Our graduating residents continue their training at some of the top fellowship programs across the country in all areas of orthopaedic surgery.

It is our hope that our alumni will remain connected. Each year at the annual AAOS meetings we hold a Lipscomb Alumni reception as an opportunity for past alumni and current residents and faculty to re-connect and foster community within our specialty. Please join us at the 2017 Lipscomb Alumni Reception on Thursday, March 16, 2017 (Location TBD). For questions or to RSVP, please contact: 916-734-5885.
