Medical Student Electives
Thank you for your interest in the clinical clerkships available for medical students in the Department of Orthopedics at Maricopa Medical Center. The rotation duration is a 1 month rotation per academic year.

Goals
The 4th year medical student rotation is designed to provide an in-depth exposure to primary care sports medicine at Maricopa Medical Center. The 2nd and 3rd year Family Medicine rotations are designed to provide this exposure for their musculoskeletal and sports medicine ACGME requirements. The curriculum will emphasize non-articular rheumatic disorders, infectious, suppurative and degenerative arthritic conditions, acquired and congenital abnormalities of bones and joints, musculoskeletal and connective tissue disorders, evaluation and management of common sprains, fractures and dislocations, preventive care, rehabilitation and restorative function. Clinical experiences will include acute evaluation of musculoskeletal trauma and acute pain syndromes. There will be emphasis on care of athletes of all ages, both genders, and persons active or anticipating exercise activities. The care of the athlete includes performance of preparticipation sports physicals, assessment of common injuries, knowledge of treatment and rehabilitation. The curriculum will include performance of procedures common in the evaluation and care of orthopedic and sports medicine patients and participation in the rehabilitation required for these patients. These include interpretation of radiographs, aspiration and injection of joints, splinting and casting.
 
Format 
Students will rotate through the Maricopa Medical Center-CHC Sports Medicine Clinic. In clinic, students will be expected to see patients, present to the attending, formulate a differential diagnosis, and recommend tests to narrow the diagnosis list, and discuss the case. Each Monday morning students will participate in the Orthopedic Department weekly conference and will be expected to present an interesting case from the previous week to the attending.
 
Evaluation Methods
Students are evaluated on their school’s/program’s required objectives and performance. Clinical case logs must be maintained in accordance with the school/program and reviewed prior to departing at the end of an assigned rotation. If your school/program does not provide an evaluation tool, we will use our own.
