Undergraduate Medical Education

The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery invites medical students in their clerkship year to do an Orthopaedic Surgery elective at the University of Calgary. In this two or three week elective, the clerk will work with an Orthopaedic Team of consultant surgeons, fellows, and/or residents at one of the sites within Calgary (Foothills Medical Centre, Peter Lougheed Centre, Rockyview General Hospital, South Health Campus, or Alberta Children’s Hospital). The clerk will gain experience in patient assessment and management in the clinic and hospital setting, emergency room, cast room, and the operating rooms. Participation in an on-call schedule is expected and will be scheduled with the preceptor and resident.
 
Upon completion of this elective, the clerk should understand the basic principles of patient management with degenerative disease, fractures, congenital conditions as well as tumors and infections in the musculoskeletal system. Most clinical teams will have a specific clinical focus or anatomical area depending on the assigned preceptors.
