Course Director: Western PA Sports Medicine

Students function as junior interns and are exposed to orthopedic examination, the use of cast and splint material, and various orthopedic procedures. They accompany the preceptor in the operating room and assume responsibility for patient care commensurate with their ability under the supervision. This rotation provides exposure to orthopedic surgery as it exists in a teaching community hospital and private practice.
