Subinternship Program

The Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Offers two options for 4th year clerkship opportunities. We offer an Adult Orthopaedics Clerkship which is a collaboration among Massachusetts General Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, and Brigham and Women's Hospitals. The clerkship is designed to parallel our combined residency program, in which our trainees work in each of these institutions throughout their training. Students will be randomly assigned to the month long rotation at one of the hospitals. While each of the training sites offers a distinct experience, they are equivalent and they are all equally a part of the combined residency.

Additionally, we offer our Pediatrics Clerkship at Boston Children’s Hospital. This course involves interactions with the pediatric orthopaedic service at Children's Hospital. The department includes divisions of sports medicine, hand surgery, spine surgery, and neuromuscular programs. The curriculum can be altered to the needs of the advanced student with exposure to outpatient clinical care, inpatient care, surgical procedures, and attendance at core curriculum lectures. The student will integrate into the department service with contact with attendings, residents and fellows. On call will be one night per week.

All students must apply through the Harvard Medical School Registrars Office. More information regarding the application can be found at HMS Exchange Clerkship Program
