Clinical Rotations Training Sites and Facilities

The orthopaedic surgery residency program at Wake Forest University provides clinical experiences at a variety of sites and treats patients from western North Carolina and surrounding states.  Most clinical rotations occur at North Carolina Baptist Hospital, which is a tertiary care center that includes Level I adult and pediatric trauma centers. The hospital has a total of 885 licensed beds and 40 operating rooms.  In 2013, the hospital had 38,600 inpatient admissions, 25,600 day hospital visits, and 107,400 emergency department outpatient visits.  The 2013 operating budget is $2.01 billion with total research awards of $203.8 million. 

The pediatric orthopaedic rotation occurs at Brenner's Children's Hospital which is a part of the main campus in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Wake Forest CompRehab houses most of the orthopaedic sub-specialty clinics and is the primary outpatient rehabilitation center for patients.  The facility is located one block from the main hospital.

Additionally, junior residents rotate at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Salisbury, North Carolina. This rotation consists of general orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine/arthroscopy.  This facility is located 40 miles from Winston-Salem and residents normally carpool four days per week.

 Finally, two new facilities opened recently.  The Clemmons Spine Center opened in 2012 and is located 8 miles from main campus.  It houses the spine clinics and outpatient interventional pain services.  Wake Forest Baptist Health - Davie Medical Center opened in 2013 and currently offers outpatient clinics for total joints, sports, and hand, as well as three operating rooms for outpatient procedures.  The site is 12 miles from main campus, and future phases of construction will include inpatient beds.  

Other resources include: Musculoskeletal Emergency Center (a departmental workstation within the ED), Orthopaedic Learning and Resource Center (departmental library, workstation, television, refrigerator); Wake Forest Coy C Carpenter Library (main medical school library with numerous online texts); Orthopaedic Research Laboratory and collaborative facilities; and the orthopaedic on-call room in Sticht Center (part of the main campus).
