Mary Culver Department of Surgery

The formal instruction in surgery begins in the third year with the required, 12-week Integrated Surgical Disciplines Clerkship. During this surgical clerkship, students are assigned to clinical rotations, mostly within the Department of Surgery, with some exposure to other surgical-related disciplines outside the department. The clerkship allows students opportunities to participate in the care of surgical patients, both in- and outpatient; spend time in the operating rooms; and attend seminars, teaching conferences and didactic sessions on a regular basis. In the fourth year, students may select “subinternship” electives within the Division of General Surgery, which include a variety of general surgical specialties. In addition to the general surgery subinternships, electives are available in pediatric surgery, transplant surgery, vascular surgery, cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, urologic surgery, and plastic and reconstructive surgery.
