Orthopaedic surgery is concerned with the injuries, diseases and conditions of the musculoskeletal system. The WUSM III rotation in Musculoskeletal Surgery & Medicine exposes the student to multiple aspects of orthopaedic surgery; this rotation includes experiences ranging from the care of patients in the emergency department, operating room, and clinical practice in the outpatient and inpatient ward.


While the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery does not offer its own degree, some of the department's courses are open to students in the MD and MSTP (MD/PhD) programs. Further information about the MD and MSTP degrees can be found in the Degrees & Programs Offered section of this Bulletin.
