This elective offers students a broad educational experience in all aspects of orthopaedic surgery. Students are valuable members of our healthcare team and are given the opportunity to participate in patient care activities with the house staff and allied health professionals. They are required to attend grand round conferences, ambulatory clinic sessions, rounds and any educational programs that are offered when they are on site. Students work closely with the residents and are supervised by the residents as well as the faculty. Students are offered the opportunity to take in house calls with the resident on call. In addition to floor work, the medical students participate in the operative cases for the service.
We make every effort to accommodate special interests of our medical students.
