Inova Trauma Externship Program
The program gives students a real-life view into what happens in trauma care. This is an unpaid externship that lasts two weeks. During this time, externs will observe professionals at work in trauma care and gain an in-depth view into a career as a trauma care service provider. Healthcare students will find this externship an enriching experience as they join trauma surgeons on their daily rounds, assess patients and provide emergency resuscitation and surgical procedures.
Externs will gain valuable career experience by working directly with trauma surgeons, trauma nurses, social workers, physical therapists and other healthcare providers in taking care of trauma patients. They will also work with the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department to observe their role in responding to emergency calls and providing trauma care.
