SURG8050K   Gen Surgery Clerkship

This clerkship has been designed to provide a broad-based experience in the art and science of Surgery. The overall goal of this rotation is to develop increasing independence in the diagnosis of conditions requiring surgical intervention and understanding the principles of their management. The Department is committed to making your rotation educational, worthwhile, and enjoyable. Our goal is to provide you with all the tools necessary to become competent clinicians. Surgery is a “team sport” and we believe that you will learn the most by integrating closely with the service team during your clinical rotations. Every activity of each member of the team offers an opportunity to learn. While the constraints imposed by the urgent nature of surgical illnesses offer challenges to your education – they also offer you rapidly evolving insights into diagnosis, pathophysiology, pathology, and treatment that are unique to this specialty.
