M4 Junior Internship in General Surgery (SUR-45024)
Available for Visiting Students and UTHSC Students
Clerkship Director: Dr. Julia Boll
This general surgery rotation is geared toward medical students who view surgery as their probable career choice. The student will be expected to assume intern-level responsibility for patient care. Students will spend four weeks working closely with our busy general surgeons, while participating as members of the resident/housestaff team. Students will participate in 1 day of clinic weekly. There will be four in-house call shifts, and expectations are to carry 4-6 patients daily. In addition to daily morning rounds, students will participate in didactic conferences including Morbidity, Mortality, & Improvement, Surgical Education Conference, Medical Student Conference, Basic Science Conference, Skills/Sim Lab, Ward Rounds, Clinical Case Conference, Vascular Conference, and Tumor Board.
Visiting students will apply to this JI rotation (SUR-45024) via the Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO). Processing applications will take approximately 90 days, so be sure to apply early. No clerkship rotations will be offered from January - May. Visiting students must be enrolled in a LCME-accredited medical school. Students will be responsible for their own housing while in Nashville. Please contact the Clerkship Coordinator for visiting student housing options.
Please be aware that all UTHSC students take precedence. If a UTHSC student signs up more than 30 days prior and after you have been accepted, we reserve the right to cancel your rotation. Please abide by the dates listed that we are offering.
