Detailed Information:
Job Description: The NYU Langone Orthopaedic Surgery Summer Medical Student Program is a 8 week summer externship designed to give medical students an in-depth exposure to academic orthopaedic surgery early in their medical school education (between their first and second year. Additionally, the program aims to promote diversity of students interested in pursuing orthopaedic surgery residency and foster mentorship by faculty members that will continue throughout medical school and into residency.

Each extern is assigned to a member of our academic faculty who will serve as their preceptor for the entire 8 week experience. The externship includes shadowing the faculty preceptor in the outpatient office setting, in the hospital clinic and in the operating room, allowing for exposure to patient care in a variety of clinical settings. The summer extern is encouraged to become a part of the faculty preceptor’s orthopaedic care team. Additional clinical experience is obtained by spending time in our orthopaedic urgent care center (Immediate Care Center) and by taking “call” alongside our Orthopaedic Surgery residents to gain experience managing the acutely injured orthopaedic patient.

Summer externs will attend a weekly academic conference/lecture series covering topics including the Orthopaedic History and Physical Examination, Orthopaedic Biomechanics, Fracture Fixation Principles, Approach to Interpreting Radiographic Studies and the Management of Common Orthopaedic Pathologies. Externs are expected to read throughout the externship to help broaden their academic experience. They will also participate in hands-on skills sessions including a splinting and casting tutorial and a Sawbones fracture fixation lab.

Each summer extern is required to participate in a scholarly activity which is presented at the conclusion of the program. The scholarly activity can be a clinical or basic science research project, a review paper or case report. The faculty preceptor will help their student select a topic and guide them through the process including assistance with the literature search and preparation of the presentation.

Externs are expected to dress appropriately during the externship. The daily schedule is determined by the faculty preceptor with a minimum of one day in the operating room, two days in the office and one day working on the academic project each week.

This externship is intellectually challenging and physically demanding. However, as past classes can attest to, this time spent is well invested. There is a strong tradition of successful externship experiences and quality research completed.
