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, has temporarily paused all visiting student rotations due to the effects of COVID-19. This means we are unable to accept rotators during the month of June 2020 and possibly beyond. Unfortunately, at this time we do not know when we will be allowed to resume away rotations.
Away rotations play a significant role in the residency application process, for both you and us. Our goal is to begin away rotations as soon as it is safe to do so. We will communicate updates as soon as we have them with you all. We will continue to accept applications through May 15. Once we have a more clear idea of when we can resume away student rotations, you all will be given a new opportunity to submit your preferred rotation dates.
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, 2020||July 31, 2020|
|Block 2||August 3, 2020||August 28, 2020|
|Block 3||August 31, 2020||September 25, 2020|
|Block 4||September 28, 2020||October 23, 2020|
|Block 5||October 26, 2020||November 20, 2020|
