He was Vice President of his medical school class, and received the Holt Leadership Award. He did his orthopaedic residency at Miami Valley Hospital/Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. After completion of his residency in 2002, he moved to Texarkana, TX where he joined the Orthopaedic Surgery Department at Collom & Carney Clinic. Dr Thompson is board certified and a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the Texas Medical Association.
