[114 Hours]
This 3-week clerkship provides third year students with the opportunity to rotate on a specialty or subspecialty in which they are potentially interested for residency. Some of the specialties allowed for this elective have not been formally available to third year students in the past (ophthalmology, emergency medicine, radiology, pathology, dermatology, anesthesiology). Students may also choose to rotate on a second surgical subspecialty (such as orthopedics, urology, ENT, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, vascular surgery) as an elective even though they are required to select one surgical subspecialty as part of their required surgery clerkship. While on the clinical elective, students will perform clinical duties (e.g. patient evaluations) and attend required didactic sessions as determined by department-specific directors. The course falls within the 12-week block during which students will take their required Surgery clerkship, so students will also be required to attend Surgery didactics sessions while on the clinical elective.
