The Dayton VA Medical Center has made an important contribution to the program, particularly as it relates to the teaching of techniques in surgery. A large volume of reconstructive, hand, and arthritis surgery is performed at this institution. There is one full-time faculty member who directs the service, and subspecialty teaching is provided by the WSU faculty. The two three-month resident rotations are completed during the third year when the residents are sufficiently experienced to obtain the maximal benefit from the wealth of clinical material available at this institution.
