Fourth Year Clerkship
The clerkship is the culmination of the required experience in Surgery, providing the student with the opportunity to apply the knowledge learned in the third year and gain additional experience in the direct clinical management of acutely ill surgical patients in a longitudinal fashion from presentation to discharge. This clerkship is focused on the "acute" patient from the emergency room to the intensive care unit. The student will actively participate on a surgical team working with faculty and other care providers. The educational experience will include supervised clinical experiences, didactic lectures, case based learning and self-study.
