Medical Education

Goals

Welcome 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. 

Description

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.
