Medical student elective rotation in Orthopaedics
To better familiarize medical students with the field of orthopaedic surgery, as well as resident life at the William Beaumont University Hospital, Royal Oak, medical students are invited to apply for a 4-week elective rotation. Students will be assigned an orthopaedic surgical subspecialty and work closely with an assigned faculty mentor and senior orthopaedic resident. Students will only rotate through the Beaumont Royal Oak Hospital campus and are not expected to travel to other clinical facilities. Through the rotation, medical students will be:
- Provided with a rigorous, hands-on operative experience.
- See patients in the Beaumont Orthopedic Institute – resident teaching clinic.
- Attend daily morning didactics and conference.
- Take (1) 12-hour Friday evening call and (1) 24-hour Saturday call.
