Medical Student Rotations
The Houston Methodist Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program offers medical student rotations for fourth-year medical students interested in pursuing an orthopedic surgery residency. Rotations are offered in August through December. In order to apply for the rotation, you must contact our residency coordinator expressing interest and include your CV (resume) and United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) step 1 score. Minimum USMLE step 1 score must be 240 to be considered as a rotator [if your step 1 is P/F then the 240 minimum should apply to your USMLE step 2 score]. This information is then presented to the Program Director and Assistant Program Director for evaluation and selection. If selected, the student will be forwarded to our graduate medical education (GME) office for credentialing and processing.
Completing a rotator application through our GME office does not guarantee a formal rotation. All students are selected by the program director. Students must have prior approval from the program before completing GME paperwork.
Our program is currently not involved with VSAS.
