MS3 Rotation


University of Virginia Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
Third Year Medical Student Rotation

Welcome from the Clerkship Director!

Every resident and attending with whom you will work over the next two weeks was in your shoes at one point. We all remember our first day on a new service not knowing where to go or what to expect. While some of us had an interest in Orthopaedics going into medical school, many of us did not know what we wanted to do until our first Orthopaedic rotation. Now most of us cannot imagine doing anything else. You will be rotating onto a very busy service with a lot going on, but we hope that we are able to provide you a productive experience that will introduce you to the field of Orthopaedic surgery.
