A graduate of the University of Arkansas College of Medicine, White completed his residency at University of Missouri Health Care and Shriner’s Hospital for Children in St. Louis. He also completed a sports medicine fellowship at the Baylor Sports Medicine Institute at the Texas Medical Center in Houston, where he worked with athletes from the Houston Texans National Football League, the Houston Astros and the University of Houston.
The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery functions to serve the best interests of the public and of the medical profession by establishing educational standards for orthopaedic residents and by evaluating the initial and continuing qualifications and knowledge of orthopaedic surgeons.
