Clinical Training Sites

Our connections to health care facilities throughout the greater Buffalo area give you experience treating a wide-ranging patient base in several clinical settings.

Training at multiple sites builds skills that let you adapt to a wide variety of professional environments.

All of our training sites will increase your experience with patients who have musculoskeletal diseases, disorders and sequelae of injuries as well as other disorders of the lower extremity.

During our rotations, you’ll gain experience at two of our satellite offices:

These satellite offices provide you with learning experiences that complement the training you’ll undertake at our main clinical training site, Buffalo General Medical Center, where you’ll spend most of your time.

Buffalo General Medical Center

This 500-bed acute care center, located on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, is one of the region’s major hospitals.

Much of the patient base comes from the local urban area. The hospital also serves as a tertiary referral center, with a significant patient population drawn from Western New York’s eight counties.

Patients present with the entire range of disease states in internal medicine, general surgery and cardiothoracic surgery, with many critically ill cases.

Patient Population

  • traditional hip and knee replacement surgery
  • operative treatment of infected joint replacement and concomitant severe bone loss
  • osteotomies of the knee and joint preservation of the hip
  • uni-compartmental knee arthroplasty
