While both rotations will enable the student to experience a wide range of Orthopaedic problems, the Jacobi experience will have greater emphasis on high energy trauma. Electives can take place at the Moses Division, the Weiler Division, and the Jacobi Medical Center. The resident day begins at 7:00am.
