Medical Students

Students may apply for an orthopaedic surgery rotation through Visiting Student Application Service. During the rotation, the student will function as an integral member of the team and will be exposed to patient care on the inpatient floor, and in the emergency room, outpatient setting and operating room. Students will have an opportunity to spend time in some of the subspecialty areas of orthopedics including joint replacement, sports medicine, trauma, foot and ankle, pediatric orthopedics, and hand, depending on their interests. Students should have a knowledge base in anatomy relevant to surgical approaches, orthopedic injuries, and basic concepts for evaluation and treatment. Students are invited and welcome to attend weekly resident didactics and conferences hosted by the Department of Orthopedic Surgery.
