2-Week Clinical Experience

·         Orthopedic Surgery
·         Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
·         Radiology
·         Rheumatology
The block will focus primarily on outpatient musculoskeletal care involving acute and chronic rehabilitation, and skeletal health maintenance. The clinical experience will take place in the orthopedic, physical medicine & rehabilitation and rheumatology outpatient clinics within the School of Medicine clinical affiliates.

In order to ofer preceptor continuity, student schedules mirror faculty schedules and thus various sites of practice. Students can expect to work out of more than one of the four affiliate sites while on the block.
