Orthopaedic Surgery Intern
June 2019 - August 2019
“I enjoyed being able to be front row in a variety of Orthopaedic surgeries spanning several specialties such as Trauma, Hand, Oncology, Sports Medicine, Foot & Ankle, Pediatrics, Spine, and Joints. Every week we would rotate to a different specialty and were given a variety of literature to read on a weekly basis in order to have a good understanding of what research is being done in that specialty currently. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to be hands on with the patients, whether that be in the operating room or clinic. I was surprised at how much I was able to get involved with, including suturing patients and assisting with splinting and casting. Every two weeks, I was responsible for shadowing along with the residents on a 24 hour trauma call at Grady Memorial Hospital and was stunned at the variety of conditions and trauma situations I was able to assist with. I had an incredible time and would highly recommend others who are interested in Orthopaedic surgery to get involved in this amazing internship geared towards minorities and women in medicine. ”
