Medical Student Information

Elective Rotations

Medical students are welcome on our service. Students interested in doing an elective rotation should make all arrangements through the UMKC School of Medicine. Please contact Petra Bricker at (816) 235-1931 for assistance. Students on our service function as sub-interns and would be expected to take trauma call in rotation with the team. There is no housing available through the hospital although occasionally housing can be arranged in the dorms on UMKC’s Volker Campus. This is four miles south of Hospital Hill, which requires some form of transportation. All costs associated with this rotation are the responsibility of the student. Health insurance coverage is required by the School of Medicine.

For students not from the University of Missouri-Kansas City, we utilize the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS) on the AAMC website. Please contact either Mrs. Larm or Ms. Bricker to let them know you are applying.


The department sponsors the medical student Orthopaedic Surgery Interest Group serves as group facilitator.
