The Orthopaedic Surgery Sub-internship rotation is open primarily to medical students who plan to apply for a position in the University of Rochester Orthopaedic Surgery residency program. During the month at Rochester, sub-interns will be integrated into the resident-led patient care teams. Students typically are assigned to two subspecialty teams, spending two weeks on each. The University of Rochester has a unique curriculum for sub-interns which is geared toward preparation for a career in Orthopaedics, and has been very well received by previous participants. Each group of sub-interns has substantial interaction with faculty including both the Program Director and the Chair.
All visiting medical students interested in participating in the University of Rochester Orthopaedic Surgery Subinternship must apply through VSAS "Visiting Student Application Service." If the visiting medical student also happens to be interested in applying for residency training in orthopaedic surgery, they must also apply through ERAS (in addition to VSAS). We recognize that not all visiting medical students will also apply for the residency training program. Historically, a remarkably high percentage of subinternship students are granted interviews AND a high percentage of subinterns who interview match at the University of Rochester Orthopaedics.
Once all required materials are received and approved by the University of Rochester School Of Medicine, the U of R SOM will contact the Department of Orthopaedics for review of completed application.Once the application review is complete and a decision is made regarding acceptance, the Office of the Registrar from the University Of Rochester School Of Medicine will contact students.
