"I never thought I would get to perform arthroscopic surgery on a synthetic knee. This was a very hands-on learning experience and I also learned a lot from just talking and asking questions to real orthopedic surgeons."
Julianna L., Student, EXPLO Ortho
"At EXPLO Ortho, the teachers were open to everything and I was able to pour all the information I wanted into my brain and then ask for more… when you go to EXPLO Ortho, it’s all at your fingertips."
Eujin X., Alum, EXPLO Ortho

Rayna D., Student, EXPLO Ortho
"I cannot recall a time I have had as much fun. We went on field trips to places I had never even dreamed of going."
Nico H., Alum, EXPLO Ortho
