Student Program Overview

OrthoCarolina offers a competitive program that takes approximately 500 students a year and is comprised of 100+ schools. OC Students are awarded a valuable hands-on experience in an actual orthopedic work environment (both clinical and administrative) to gain a firsthand understanding of day to day tasks and responsibilities that they will encounter. Desirable students should be interested in demonstrating a commitment to excellence and to making lives better under OrthoCarolina mentorship. Our students receive unpaid internships, shadowing, externships and volunteering that are hosted by OC staff such as our MDs, PAs, Physical and Occupational Therapists, etc.
