Surgery Clerkship (8 weeks)
MED MS 311
During the Surgery Clerkship, students are assigned to a four week rotation in general surgery at one of three sites: BMC-ENC, the West Roxbury VAMC, or Cape Cod Hospital. Students also do two weeks of vascular or cardiothoracic surgery, and two weeks of either anesthesiology or trauma surgery at BMC-HAC. Each of these rotations includes experience in the OR. All rotations except anesthesiology include experience as part of the surgical team caring for patients on the surgical wards, and outpatient care in surgical clinics. Students work directly with faculty in the OR, in clinic, and in regular meetings with their preceptors. All students return to BMC for didactics on Friday, and they participate in educational conferences with the residents and attendings.
