Nothing in medical school prepares you for how to do well on an orthopedic rotation. Get a jump start before your rotations with this course which covers high yield topics and tips on how to maximize your rotation performance.
We designed this curriculum with the ortho auditioning student in mind. At White Coat Coaching, we firmly believe that subinternship rotations are for learning and developing relationships. To do that well, a basic foundation of ortho knowledge is required. Most of the resources out there are geared towards residents and there is A LOT of information that can get overwhelming very quickly, which leads to inefficient use of your very limited time and resources.
This lesson plan is a collection of the lectures I wish I could give every rotating student throughout the audition season. In the realities of a busy orthopedic service, there's just never enough time. The course condenses these lectures into 17 modules you can access at your convenience.
Here's what some of you have said about the course so far:
"The Trauma section was my favorite. I was told by many to "just memorize handbook". There is tons of information in there, and way too little time. I was very confused by classifications and which to know, which could wait on memorizing. It helped to have a good break down of what you need to know, at least at the level of a student. How to read an xray is a close second."
"This resource seems invaluable for medical students on orthopedic audition rotations. I will be recommending this to all my friends auditioning for Ortho."
"This course covers a lot of the basics that are expected of you on an orthopedics rotation! This is a great way to start building your knowledge and getting more comfortable with the information because you get into other resources that may already expect you to have this knowledge. Definitely worth it in my opinion!" - Haley
Our goal with this course is to provide a solid foundation of orthopedic knowledge focused on high yield areas for students. While this course is by no means an exhaustive list of all the pimp questions you'll be asked on rotations, it is the perfect jump start to your orthopedic rotations.
