Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation
During this one-month period, the interns will gain knowledge and experience in the
emergency room evaluation of patients with vessel damage and laceration, obtain exposure
to decision-making on patients with vascular trauma, gain exposure to operating room
techniques and hospital and post-operative care, gain exposure to outpatient follow-up
with patients who sustain vascular trauma. Interns will gain experience in the management
of patients with diabetic vascular disease and gain exposure to the surgical management
of patients with chronic vessel disease.
During the PGY II and III years, the residents begin their four years of rotations
through the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. These junior residents provide first
call for orthopaedic surgery. They will provide initial patient care for trauma patients
entering the emergency room and make initial evaluations. The rotations are designed
to meet the requirements of the Residency Review Committee (RRC).
