Clerkships

MWHC-Clerkships-Podiatric-Surgery

We offer externships to students who apply. Although we make every effort to accommodate requests, our program routinely receives more applicants than available slots. 

Typically, we accept 4 externs per rotation. During the rotation, we divide the experience into two, two-week slots designated at our two main hospitals in the D.C. area. Our externship is designed to give the student the highest exposure and greatest visibility of our program. We are proud to provide externs with a varied experience.
