Success on Orthopedic Electives Post: Two Medical Students Found Us

Keyword Optimization Works. It looks like two searchers found the post that I put up about Orthopedic Electives in Winnipeg. I also have a couple of people signed up on the Facebook group ( Manitoba Orthopedic Elective Information) that I started.

Now it's time to get more serious. I have a short description that will soon appear on the Pan Am Clinic Website. I'm hoping that site will see more traffic than my humble little blog. But, I'm going to preview it here. If you read it and think that I left out some important information then let me know in a comment and you will see your thoughts echoed in the final version.

Looking forward to getting the chance to show more outsiders what a good thing we have going here at University of Manitoba Orthopedic Surgery!

University of Manitoba – Orthopedic Surgery Electives

Manitoba Orthopedics is the perfect program for medical student electives. We offer a complete spectrum of subspecialty experiences to medical students interested in Orthopedic Surgery.

Our program features clinical and research activities based out of: The Pan Am Centre, Concordia Hospital/Hip and Knee Institute, Health Sciences Centre and Children’s Hospital. All sites accept rotating medical students for clinical and research rotations. Students work within the clinical team in order to feel what it is like to be a trainee in our program. Rotations can be tailored to student interests or can provide an overview of the program by scheduling time at each site.

Previous elective students have commented that electives in Winnipeg allowed hands-on experiences and close interactions with residents and staff. These students also liked being integrated in the Orthopedic Team and the responsibility and support that they were given. They have comment on the amount of teaching given by staff and residents in clinics and the operating room.
