Medical Student

Emory’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery offers four-week clinical externships throughout the academic year. All applicants should provide proof of passing the USMLE Step I exam and have completed at least one Orthopaedic rotation at their home institution.

Applications are requested a minimum of two months prior to the desired month of the rotation. Rotations are filled on a first come, first serve basis with eight being the maximum number of rotators for each four-week period.

The calendar of rotations will follow that of Emory Medical School but other schedules may be discussed on a case-by-case basis. Each rotator will spend two weeks on the Orthopaedic Trauma Service at Grady Memorial Hospital, followed by two weeks with another Emory faculty member at Emory University Hospital, Egleston Children’s Hospital, Crawford Long Hospital, or the Emory Orthopaedics and Spine Center. Requests will be honored when possible.
