Resident Benefits

Education Stipend

A generous grant from the Campbell Clinic Foundation provides additional $1,500 educational funding for each resident in the program. The funding is used by residents for educational expenses such as laptops, loupes, courses, or other specialized medical equipment.


The Campbell Foundation provides incoming PGY-1 residents with the current edition of the following texts:

  1. Hoppenfeld, S., and DeBoer,P.: Exposures in Orthopaedics: The anatomic Approach
  2. Rockwood and Green – Fractures in Adults and Children Vol. 1 and 2 and 3 : Should be given a somewhat cursory read-through for exposure to terminology and techniques without attempting to memorize classification systems, specific treatment modalities, etc.
  3. Campbell’s Operative Orthopaedics. Reading Campbell’s Operative before residency is an almost impossible task unless all operative procedures are excluded and only the introductory information in each chapter is read. This reduces the material to probably less than one volume. It is pointless to read every operative procedure and try to memorize technique, but there is much useful background information in the preliminary sections.
  4. Morrissy, R.: Lovell & Winter’s Pediatric Orthopaedics
  5. Koval, Kenneth: Handbook of Fractures
  6. AAOS: Orthopaedic Basic Science
  7. Miller, Mark: Review of Orthopaedics
