Learn Alongside Our Team of Experts Doctors working with and teaching residents.

Join us for an elective (sub-internship) at the Johns Hopkins Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. We perform close to 10,000 operations each year at six campuses. No matter which rotation you choose, you'll get an opportunity to learn from an experienced team of orthopaedic specialists.


Get Started

  • Choose a Rotation

    Rotations include pediatrics, hand/upper extremity, oncology, spine, trauma surgery, joint replacement and other clinical areas.

  • Submit an Application

    Everything you need to know about applying, whether you are a U.S. or international student.

  • Get Informed

    Learn what to expect on your start day and beyond.


Please note that completion of a visiting sub-internship is not required to match in our residency program. Many of our current residents did not complete a visiting elective rotation with us. Although we will give your application every consideration, completion of a visiting subinternship does not automatically lead to an interview.

If you have any questions about our medical student electives, please contact Beth Hall at or call 410-955-8344.
