Our ability to conduct in-person audition rotations for the 2021-2022 academic year is still to be determined. We are accepting applications from prospective auditioning students for the 2021-2022 rotation cycle at this time. We are making every effort for these rotations to be conducted in person and if in-person audition rotations are not allowed, we will proceed with virtual audition rotations. If you are interested in auditioning with us, please submit an application as slots are limited. We will update this site as more information is available. 

Virtual audition rotations this past year consisted of daily morning didactic sessions, with an opportunity to interact with the residents and faculty, weekly OITE review, weekly fracture conference and bi-weekly journal clubs. Students will follow the resident's study curriculum and participate in group question review sessions. The auditioning student will also have an opportunity to present articles at journal club and do case-based presentations during the two-week audition period. Students should consult with their medical school administration as to whether or not a virtual rotation will count toward credit for graduation.
