John Harker

The orthopedic surgery residency program at Largo Medical Center is sponsored by Nova Southeastern University. It is a fully approved, five-year program which provides trainees with the educational and practical experience that will enable them to deliver superior specialized care to patients.

Of great importance is our mission to educate and train the best in orthopedic surgery residents. We design a comprehensive curriculum that is constantly enhanced with resident and faculty feedback.

I encourage you to look around the website and contact the medical education office at (727) 588-5704 if you have any questions about the program, would like to speak to a resident, and/or schedule a visit.

Look forward to hearing from you!
