BROC Internship Program

Hands-on Experience:  Interns often gain valuable experience working alongside experienced orthopedic professionals, including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, and nurses. This exposure allows them to observe various procedures, patient interactions, and treatment methods.

Clinical Rotations:  Interns may rotate through different departments within the orthopedic clinic, such as the surgery unit, outpatient clinic, Therapy Services department, and imaging center. This rotation exposes them to various clinical experiences and helps them understand the aspects of orthopedic care.

Shadowing Opportunities: Interns have the opportunity to shadow orthopedic physicians and surgeons during patient consultations, surgeries, and follow-up appointments. This firsthand observation provides insights into diagnosing and treating orthopedic conditions and the surgical techniques used.

Patient Care as a Volunteer/ Intern: Depending on their level of training and experience, interns may assist with patient care tasks under the supervision of healthcare professionals. This could include taking patient histories, performing physical examinations, assisting with procedures, and providing patient education.

Educational Requirements:  Depending on the internship program, applicants may need to meet certain educational requirements, such as enrollment in a healthcare-related degree program or completion of specific coursework. Some programs may also require interns to have basic life support (BLS) or cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification. (High School students may shadow only)

Duration and Schedule: The duration of orthopedic internships can vary, ranging from a few weeks to several months. Interns may be required to commit to a full-time schedule during their internship period, although some programs offer part-time or flexible scheduling options to accommodate academic commitments.

Application Process: Interested candidates typically need to submit an application, resume, and possibly letters of recommendation or transcripts. Some programs may also require an interview as part of the selection process. Applicants need to demonstrate a strong interest in orthopedic medicine and a commitment to professional growth.
