    Why they chose SIU

    SIU has a proven track record for graduating technically-skilled, well-rounded orthopaedic surgeons. This reputation, the collegial atmosphere, and the robust operative exposure (even as junior residents) made SIU an obvious first choice for me. The early, hands-on experience as a junior resident is unmatched and our one-on-one training with attendings provides us with a personal and effective surgical education experience. We continue to match graduating residents into top-ranked fellowship programs​ and our training, research opportunities and community engagement prepare us well for both private and academic practice. On top of that, Springfield is a perfect place to live. Housing is economical, traffic is minimal and there's always something going on to entertain you for an evening. Also, if you're into Abe Lincoln - we've got all the sites and history you can handle.
