Harvard Medical School
Stetson Powell Orthopedics and Sports Medicine is looking to hire six recent graduates and aspiring doctors for its year-long, paid internship program. This internship is designed to provide practical experience to college graduates bound for medical school. The interns work directly with the physicians and will learn how to take medical histories, document patient present illnesses, review X-ray and MRI results from the in-office X-ray and MRI machines, and to synthesize information into possible diagnoses. The interns will have the opportunity to attend both arthroscopic and open surgery of the shoulder, knee, elbow, hip, and ankle. They will engage in ongoing research projects with the goal of publishing their projects in peer-reviewed journals. Finally, the interns have the opportunity to learn the business side of medicine by sitting in on business and financial meetings of the group and occasionally assisting with the overall operation of the office. Our program started in 2005 and we are proud that all of our interns have been accepted into medical school.
The internship program begins each year on the first of June. Qualifications are students who have recently graduated from a university, taken the MCAT, and plan on attending medical school. Interest in Orthopedics is preferred, but not required as this experience will help all aspiring doctors.
