Externship Program

Washington University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery will offer in-person Sub-I rotations for 4th year medical students starting August 1. Medical students should apply through VSAS. If you have questions about Washington University or to express your interest in our program, please email Alisa Cooperstein, Manager of Medical Education. The rotation dates will be:

  • August 2 - August 27, 2021
  • August 30 - September 24, 2021
  • September 27 - October 22, 2021
  • October 25 - November 19, 2021

For those 4th year students who are unable to rotate at WashU, we will again offer two virtual opportunities. The two programs are different and complement each other.  

“Ortho Thursdays” casual social event for students. This program is a 4 week program on a Thursday night at 8 PM CST. The program lasts about 1-1.5 hours and includes a short teaching session by one of our residents (similar to something you would hear from them if you were on call in the ED and had a minute to talk about common cases). The remainder of the time is social time/Q&A.

The second is our “Virtual Week with Wash U”. The Virtual Week is a week long program that allows you to participate in conferences and meet with faculty and residents in our program. We hope to show you how our program works and give insight into rotations, faculty-resident interactions and our medical center. The week will include overview content about St. Louis and Washington University as well as a virtual tour.

To express your interest in our virtual rotation, please email your CV and Step One score to Alisa Cooperstein, Manager of Medical Education.
