INSTRUCTION FOR MEDICAL STUDENTSPreclinical instruction is carried out in hand surgery, adult orthopaedic surgery, spine surgery, pediatric orthopaedic surgery, sports medicine, and physiatry. Most of the courses offered are intended to provide students with a basic overview of these specialties, with emphasis on common disorders, examination of patients, clinical testing, diagnosis, and treatment. Research studies are in progress in all surgical divisions. Preclinical or clinical students interested in surgical research opportunities should contact the various divisional offices.
Clinical instruction is designed to provide students with a broad background in clinical surgery or physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R). Emphasis in all clerkships is on the application of preclinical knowledge to commonly encountered clinical problems. Instruction includes current developments in patient management as well as research in the specialty. The clerkships also enable students to become better acquainted with opportunities in surgical research.
RESIDENCY TRAININGResidency Programs offer training in orthopaedics and physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R). To broaden the scope of experience, Palo Alto Veterans Administration Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente Medical Center at Santa Clara, and Santa Clara Valley Medical Center are incorporated into Stanford University Medical Center programs. Each hospital adds a unique element to the total surgical experience for the Stanford University Medical Center trainee. Each program is supervised by full-time surgical faculty members and administered by the department.
The Orthopaedic Residency is a five-year accredited program and integrated program in the management of adults and children with orthopaedic problems. A wide range and diversity of teaching material is available at affiliated hospitals.
The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency is a three-year program. Residents are admitted to the program after completing an internship elsewhere. The program leads to eligibility to become certified in PM&R.
POSTDOCTORAL TRAININGPostdoctoral Training opportunities are available. For information, refer to the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs home page at http://postdocs.stanford.edu/ or the departmental home page.
