FOR STUDENTS AND GRADUATES

Internships for orthopedics students

If you are studying medicine and you have the ambition to achieve success in orthopedics, join the Student Scientific Society at the Carolina Medical Center.

The Society at the Carolina Medical Center has been operating since 2005. Three years later, it was registered at the Medical University of Warsaw. The Society usually meets twice a month. The main profile of the club is sports medicine and traumatology. We discuss topics related to the work of an orthopedist, radiologist and physiotherapist, based on presentations prepared by the members and guardians of the Society. As part of volunteering, students accompany doctors during consultations in the office, assist in surgery, have the opportunity to work directly with athletes during camps and trainings. We make sure that the meetings are practical - students learn to examine joints and practice surgical suturing. We created a team of surgical suture instructors and conduct sewing courses for students of the Medical University of Warsaw outside our Society.

The experience gained in the work of the Student Scientific Society is a great contribution to a career in renowned orthopedic centers. Some of today's medical staff at the Carolina Medical Center are recruited from former members of the club. If you would like to apply to become a member of Student Scientific Society at the Carolina Medical Center please send your documents to skn.carolina@gmail.com
