State-of-the-Art Facilities, State-of-the-Art Experience

In December 2007, UVM Medical Center opened its brand new Orthopedic Specialty Center — a 55,000-square-foot facility bringing together all necessary orthopedic and rehabilitation services into one expanded space. This facility provides an optimal environment for treating patients, and because it was designed with teaching and training in mind, it’s also the optimal setting for honing your skills as a physician.

In addition, fully digital imaging systems offer immediate access to patient studies both on campus and off, making patient assessment efficient and facilitating direct communication between residents and staff.
