Training Verification Request

​Due to the increase in request for information/verification of residency/fellowship training, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery will be charging a fee for verification.  A link to a sample Standard Verification Form is provided below for your use in reviewing the content of that form to help determine if the Standard Verification Form will meet your credentialing request.

Residency/Fellowship verification requests may be submitted to the UC San Diego Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at orthores@ucsd.edu. Please indicate the name of the trainee and the years they trained. 

Our office can verify training for Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Training, Hand Surgery, Adult Reconstructive Hip & Knee, Spine Surgery, and Orthopaedic Trauma Fellowship only.  If you are requesting a verification for another fellowship or residency program, contact that program directly. Each program at UC San Diego operates as a separate entity, so they may or may not charge the same for verification services.  A list of contacts for the various UC San Diego Programs can be found here.
