Thank you so much for your interest in the Department of Orthopedics at Rush University Medical Center! Your safety and education is our first priority. Rush, like most institutions across the country, will be following the Coalition for Physician Accountability guideline for Medical Student Away Rotations. This means that we will resume away rotations on August 1, 2021.
Fourth year medical students from across the country are invited to join us at Rush University Medical Center (RUMC) for a clinical rotation to learn more about our program. Each medical student will rotate on one of our orthopaedic subspecialty services.
As part of the rotation, students will attend all conferences and spend time in both our operating rooms and clinics. Students will also assist our second year residents on call at both RUMC and John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, a level 1 trauma center.
By the end of rotation, the student will be able to:
|Blocks||Start Date||End Date|
|Block 1||July 6, 2021||July 30, 2021|
|Block 2||August 2, 2021||August 27, 2021|
|Block 3||August 30, 2021||September 24, 2021|
|Block 4||September 27, 2021||October 22, 2021|
|Block 5||October 25, 2021||November 19, 2021|
