Community Memorial Health System Inaugurates Orthopedic Residency Program

Community Memorial Hospital

Community Memorial Health System, located in Ventura County, California, inaugurated its first class of residents in July 2013.   The system is composed of eleven community-based ambulatory health centers, two hospitals and three AOA residency programs.  Under the leadership of Sam Small, DO, who serves as Director of Medical Education, there is a Family Medicine Program, Internal Medicine Program and Orthopedic Surgery Program.  What originated in 1901 as a single hospital serving its neighbors has grown into an expansive health care system that touches the lives of individuals throughout Ventura County.  Our health system is a community-owned, not-for-profit organization.

Approved by the AOA to train 10 orthopedic residents in total, the program began its inaugural class with the following two residents:

The Program Director for the Orthopedic Program is Dennis Horvath, DO.  There are nine core faculty members training the residents in both general and subspecialty areas of orthopedics.  The faculty are Dennis Horvath, DO; Sam Small, DO; Karl Buechsenschuetz, DO; John Schlecter, DO (Children’s Hospital of Orange County); Thomas Golden, MD; Fredrick Menninger, MD; Robert Mazurek, MD; Farzin Kabaei, MD; and Reza Jazayeri, MD.  The program benefits from the depth and breadth of the case volume at Community Memorial.

The program, working in concert with the other residency programs provides seven hours of structured didactics each week.  Residents will  receive their core training at Community Memorial and rotate to Children’s Hospital of Orange County (California) for pediatric orthopedic training, as well as Ventura County Medical Center for orthopedic trauma.

For more information regarding the Orthopedic Surgery program, contact Dr. Erin Quinn, ADME at equinn@cmhshealth.org or call the Office of Medical Education at (805) 652-5650.
