medical students to the orthopedic surgery rotation at Doctors Hospital. Our goal
during your rotation is to provide you with a broad exposure to orthopedic
surgery as a field as well as introduce you to as much of our program as
possible. For students
who are interested in orthopedic surgery as a residency we make an effort to
introduce you to as many residents and attendings in the program as possible.
We try to do this in the context of making the rotation beneficial from a
didactic and experiential manner. For those looking to learn about orthopedics
but not interested in it as a career we welcome you as well and will try to aim
our teaching and your experience toward the completion of your goals.
All students will rotate through Doctor’s Hospital and be introduced
to our newly remodeled hospital as well as the Heritage Center for Osteopathic
Medical Education. This $27.5 million dollar expansion houses state of the art
anatomy and simulation labs. The majority of students will rotate through Grant
Medical Center, a level 1 trauma center, on the orthopedic trauma service.
Those that spend more than two weeks with us will be exposed to additional
sub-specialty rotations with one or more of our 30+ fellowship trained
attendings. Rotations frequently worked into student schedules include hand,
sports, spine and adult reconstruction. We have also opened up an opportunity
through Nationwide Children’s Hospital, a level 1 pediatric trauma and tertiary
referral center, on the orthopedic service where you can spend time with our residents
during their six month pediatric orthopedic rotation.
Third or fourth year medical students.
