We welcome 4th year medical students who wish to do a 4-week sub-internship at Yale, as this is a great way to gain insight into our program. Students spend 2 weeks on our trauma service and 2 weeks on sports, recon (joints & oncology), hand, foot & ankle, spine, or pediatric orthopedics, depending on scheduling. During their time at Yale, students become a part of the service and are included in rounds, surgical cases, and consults. Sub-interns are also invited to resident dinners and journal club. Rotation scheduling is flexible, and the 4-week block may be adjusted to accommodate schedules of other medical schools, if rotation slots permit.
Visiting U.S. Medical students can apply for electives by completing the application through YSM Student Affairs. If you have any difficulties or questions, please contact our program coordinator Kathy Umlauf.
