The student participating in any of the above educational rotations will be integrated into one of our surgery teams and be involved in: 1) the routine pre- and post-operative care of General Surgery and Surgery specialty patients, 2) assistance in operative and bedside procedures, 3) trauma resuscitations and surgical consultations. The student will participate in all departmental educational activities, including 1) Morbidity and Mortality conferences, 2) Core Curriculum lectures, 3) Anatomy Lab, 4) Hopkins Grand Rounds and 5) Tumor Board. In addition the student will receive two core lectures weekly that are specifically designed for student education.
At the end of the rotation it is expected that the student will present a capstone patient in the Morbidity and Mortality conference.
While we generally encourage and foster active, hands-on involvement of our students, the actual level of responsibility and involvement in procedures will depend on the student’s prior level of training and ongoing knowledge/skills evaluation.
In addition to rotation on the general surgical services, students may choose to spend time in the surgical ICU for additional critical care experience.
Students are responsible to communicate any specific requirements posed by their respective medical school with the initial application and are responsible to follow the regulations by their school for off campus rotations.
