Medical Student Clerkship

The Orthopaedic Surgery Department at the University of Missouri – Kansas City welcomes senior medical students to participate in a four-week sub-internship. During this month, students will gain an in-depth exposure to musculoskeletal medicine and orthopaedic care. This experience is designed to provide an overview of orthopaedic surgery by engaging students on the various sub-specialty services provided by our institutions, including Adult Reconstruction, Adult Hand, Adult Foot and Ankle, Trauma, Spine, Oncology, and Sports Medicine. Students interested in participating on a pediatric rotation are welcome to apply at Children’s Mercy Hospital, our flagship hospital for the pediatric experience in the UMKC Residency Program.

The University of Missouri – Kansas City Orthopaedic Surgery Department welcomes visiting medical students to rotate with us. Rotations are available each summer and fall for qualified, fourth-year medical students from LCME-accredited medical schools. Interested students should contact our coordinator, Carolyn Holtman, with the following information: name, medical school, USMLE Step 1 score, brief explanation (one to two paragraphs) of interest in the program, and requested dates of rotation. Tentative approval will be granted after application review by our clerkship director Jonathan Dubin, M.D. However, formal approval requires that an application be submitted and verified through VSAS to secure the rotation. Students who do not submit a complete VSAS application will not be permitted to rotate. Requests will be reviewed and rotations will be scheduled in the order they are received.

A general outline of the rotation can be seen below.

Truman Medical Center

Four weeks will be spent at this busy, urban Level-1 Trauma Center in the heart of Jackson County, Missouri. Students will have the opportunity to participate on a care-team ran by the chief resident. Students will receive roughly equal exposure to inpatient management, outpatient clinic and the operating room. While this is a trauma center, students will work with faculty from various orthopaedic sub-specialties.

University Health

This is our brand-new, state-of-art outpatient ambulatory care center across the street from Truman Medical Center-Hospital Hill. Students will have the opportunity to participate in clinics and outpatient surgeries at this facility during their rotation.

Call Responsibility

Taking call is not mandatory during this rotation. However, for those interested in learning about the call responsibility, the experience can be arranged by working out a schedule with our chief resident. Students should not attempt more than five calls for the month.

Conferences

Students are expected to attend the dedicated didactics for the residents on Wednesdays from 6:30-9:30 a.m. at Truman Medical Center, as well Morning Grand Rounds/Journal Club on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 a.m. Students also are encouraged to join the Case Conferences, held the first and third Saturday of the month from 7-8 a.m. in the Crocket Conference Room at St. Luke’s Hospital. In addition, Program Director Dr. James Bogener hosts a surgical skills lab for PGY-1 and PGY-2 residents on Tuesdays from 6:30-7:30 a.m. in the Orthopaedic Surgical Skills Lab. Students are welcome to participate.

Presentations

Students are asked to present a topic for grand rounds at the end of their rotation. It is a power-point presentation and can cover any area of interest; however, students are encouraged to seek guidance from senior residents and/or faculty.

Specific Goals of the Sub-Internship
  • Develop skills in history and physical examination in patients presenting with musculoskeletal complaints
  • Understand the assessment and principles of early management in poly-trauma patients
  • Carry-out routine patient care tasks, i.e. post-operative dressing changes, surgical retraction, simple superficial wound closure, simple reductions and splinting under direct supervision
  • Present a routine orthopaedic patient concisely and accurately to an attending
  • Develop team work skills and communicate effectively
  • Learn. ENJOY!
Student Evaluation

Students will be evaluated by the faculty members who worked extensively with that student. In addition, the chief resident on service is asked to perform an evaluation. Written evaluations are completed at the end of the four-week rotation. An exit interview will be performed to provide direct, oral feedback. For mid-rotation feedback, students may contact a staff member or chief resident for comments so that improvements can be made prior to the end of the rotation. Evaluation will be based on multiple factors, including: patient care, knowledge, professionalism, interpersonal communication skills and work ethic.

In addition to the global evaluation, we ask that medical students seek evaluation on two of seven milestones based off the ACGME resident milestones. The criteria for each of these milestones can be seen by clicking here.

  • Hip Fracture
  • Tibia / Femur Fracture
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Knee / Hip Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative Spinal Conditions
  • Rotator Cuff
  • Acute Traumatic Knee Pain

Students will also be asked to write an evaluation of their experience and the faculty they worked with during their rotation.

*Students matriculating at UMKC will have the opportunity to rotate through St. Luke’s Hospital, if desired. Unfortunately, this exposure is not available to visiting students.

**UMKC students are always welcome to attend the Wednesday or Saturday morning conferences, as we believe these are invaluable learning opportunities.

Special Events

Orthopaedic Surgical Skills Laboratory

IMG_2554Established in 2014, the Orthopaedic Surgical Skills Laboratory affords residents the opportunity to practice basic and advanced surgical motor skills in a simulated environment. The laboratory was funded by grants from the Diveley Resident Education Fund at St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation and Children’s Mercy Hospital.

IMG_2552The lab is equipped with a full range of skills simulators, specific to orthopaedic surgery.  During the PGY-1 year, residents complete 17 basic surgical skills modules, as suggested by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.  These modules have been integrated into the department’s core curriculum, and residents have protected time to complete them.

The laboratory is open to all residents 24 hours a day/7 days per week with key-card access.

Equipment

Arthoscopic Equipment

The lab is equipped with a capital equipment arthroscopic tower, which includes a camera, light source, arthroscopic shaver, and fluid pump. This setup allows “dry lab” experiences with models and the AANA FAST system, as well as the ability to perform arthroscopic procedures on cadaver specimens.  The lab has both 30° and 70° arthroscopes available.

ABOS/AANA/AAOS FAST System

The lab also has 2 complete FAST (Fundamentals of Arthroscopic Surgery Training) systems allowing simulated arthroscopic skills that build hand-eye coordination for arthroscopic surgery.  Included is a laptop, which functions as camera and light source, a 30° scope, all eight FAST modules, and a FAST knot tester.

Orthopaedic Trauma

The lab houses several orthopaedic implant tools for residents to become familiar with and to practice proper technique.  These include: two complete Stryker Operating Room power hand pieces, a small fragment fixation set, external fixation set, traction bows and pins, Gardner-Wells tongs, and K-wires. The lab is also equipped with a variety of simulated bones which can be used for tactile feedback.

Microsurgery

The lab is equipped to teach the basic principles of microsurgery using fine suture and latex tissue analog. Residents are provided surgical loops during their PGY-1 year for microsurgery training and surgery.

Operating Room Equipment

Residents can practice prepping, draping, casting, and suturing in the lab. The lab has an OR table and the availability of C-arm fluoroscopy.

Joint Injections

Available in the lab are joint injection models for shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles. There is also a compartment syndrome tester to develop the ability to correctly place a needle in each of the four compartments of the lower leg.  A Stryker intra-compartmental pressure monitor is available to obtain accurate pressure readings.

Department History

Dickson-Diveley
Early History

The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) was established in 1935, and by that time Rex L Diveley, M.D. and Franklin Dickson, M.D. (both above) had already been training residents in Kansas City for several years.  No one is certain when Drs. Dickson and Diveley took their first resident, but the origin of the University of Missouri—Kansas City’s Orthopaedic Surgery Department and Residency can be traced to these two pioneering physicians. They established the Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedic Clinic in Kansas City in 1927, but had known each other at the Christian Church Hospital at 27th and Paseo since 1922. They moved their practice to St. Luke’s Hospital in 1928, and established the orthopaedic department there that exists to this day.

Both early members of the ABOS, Drs. Dickson and Diveley established a formal, one year orthopaedic residency in Kansas City at St. Luke’s Hospital in 1935 with the founding of the board.  When the ABOS expanded the orthopaedic surgery residency requirements to three years in 1938, Drs. Dickson and Diveley expanded their residency to three years and incorporated the Kansas City General Hospital #1 department of orthopaedic surgery into their program. Dr. Dickson became the 9th president of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and Dr. Diveley the 15th president.

BarnardJohn1945-1980

In 1946, Rear Admiral Richard H. Keine, M.D. joined the Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedic Clinic and became chairman of orthopaedics at Kansas City General Hospital #1.  He served in this position until his retirement in 1981, seeing the integration of Kansas City General Hospital #1 and Kansas City General Hospital #2 in 1957, the induction of the first class of medical students at the University of Missouri—Kansas City School of Medicine (UMKC-SOM) in 1971, and the dedication of Truman Medical Center (which replaced the Kansas City General Hospital system) and the Medical School building in 1976.

John L. Barnard, M.D. (pictured) joined the Dickson-Diveley clinic in 1956 and became the first formal residency program director. He was program director until 1981.

1981-Present

In 1980, the ABOS requested that all residency programs become affiliated with an academic institution. The Dickson-Diveley program was integrated into the UMKC-SOM and became the UMKC/Truman Medical Center Affiliated Hospitals program.  James J. Hamilton, M.D. became chairman of the department of orthopaedic surgery at Truman Medical Center and assumed the role of program director of the residency in 1981. He was the longest serving chairman and program director in the country at his retirement in July 2012, after serving for over 30 years.

Mark Bernhardt, M.D. was named interim chairman of the department in July of 2012, and became permanent chairman in July of 2013. Brad Olney, M.D., chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at Children’s Mercy Hospital, became program director of the residency in July of 2012.
