InovaTrauma Acute Care Surgery Externship
The application deadline is usually at the end of January, and the externship runs for about two weeks beginning in June. Although unpaid, the program is designed to give students an in-depth view of a career in trauma care. Externs will learn first-hand by interacting directly with trauma surgeons and will be present during daily rounds, patient assessments, emergency resuscitation and surgical procedures.
Externs will work with a trauma services team, including trauma surgeons, trauma nurses, social workers, physical therapists and other allied healthcare providers. They will receive an inside view into what really happens at a trauma care center.
