SURG 420 - SURGERY CLINICAL

[152 Hours]
The fourth year course in clinical surgery has been structured to provide the student with an in-depth clinical experience to general surgery and the surgical subspecialties. Students will be assigned to one of three sites: general surgery and specialty internships at the Medical Center of Louisiana, New Orleans, or internships in general surgery at Earl K. Long Memorial Hospital, Baton Rouge and the University Medical Center, Lafayette. These students will be assigned to a specific preceptor for the entire four week block. Students assigned to an internship position at Medical Center of Louisiana, New Orleans or one of the other state hospitals will be the only Senior students assigned to the service and will function with the house staff as a member of the surgical team. The course will be structured to give each student the maximum responsibility possible, and to simulate the experience obtained in a house staff training position.
