DMC/Providence Hospital Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program


The Detroit Medical Center (DMC)/Providence Hospital Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program is unique in its structure as well as its vision and mission. We have only one mission - quality education of Orthopaedic residents. Our vision is accomplishing the mission through a structure that utilizes the resources of two large health care institutions/systems in a partnership designed to get the best from both.



The program receives its primary direction from Residency Program Chairman, David Markel, M.D., and Residency Program Director, Paul Dougherty, M.D. Both are part of the Orthopaedic Research and Education committee that comprises the primary faculty leadership, including: Dr. Jeff Flynn (Providence Hospital/Research), Dr. Todd Frush (Providence Hospital), Dr. Stephen Lemos (Detroit Surgery Hospital), Dr. Bryan Little (Detroit Receiving Hospital), Dr. Bryant Oliphant (Detroit Receiving Hospital), Dr. Rahul Vaidya (Detroit Receiving Hospital) and Dr. Walid Yassir (Children's Hospital of Michigan).
