-For medical students interested in setting up audition rotations, the season will start on July 1st.
-When submitting your application, please give us two different time slots that will work with your schedule and we will do our best to accommodate.
As far as what to expect while on your 4 week rotation, you will spend time at:
- Main Line Heath system ( Lankenau Medical Center, Paoli Hospital)
- St. Christopher's Hospital for Children
- Abington Hospital (Jefferson Health)
Duties while on service will include rounding, helping with day to day floor responsibilities, and of course, OR case coverage. You will also have the opportunity to spend time in the office, predominately with the program chairman, Dr. John McPhilemy, but also with some of our core faculty. Students will attend our education on Thursdays from 2p-6p (Evans Hall Room 334A). You may be expected to read basic X-rays as well as discuss classifications and treatment options in commonly seen injuries. If involved in cases, you should be expected to know the basic musculoskeletal anatomy. Rounding and case coverage on the weekends with the junior residents is optional, but encouraged.
