An eight-week General Surgery rotation is a clinical experience that introduces students to basic principles of surgery and related problems. Its curriculum is defined by learning objectives and encompasses inpatient-hospital and outpatient-office experiences. During the clerkship, students evaluate and follow patients. 7 weeks of general surgery including its subspecialities and one week of Urology make up the rotation.
Daily rounds and faculty/preceptor interactions give students the opportunity to discuss patient problems in detail. Faculty members provide students with regular feedback, advice, and direction.
