The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery offers a variety of electives for Indiana University School of Medicine students and guest students. Third-year students should have completed their surgery clerkship before selecting an advanced clinical elective. All electives are four weeks in duration.
As part of every elective, students are expected to prepare and give a brief presentation on an orthopaedic topic of their choosing. This gives students an opportunity to showcase their abilities in self-directed learning, teaching and presentation skills in front of department faculty.
See the medical school elective course descriptions for other opportunities in orthopaedics throughout the state.
