SURG 437 - CLINICAL PEDIATRIC SURGERY

[152 Hours]
The fourth year course in pediatric surgery provides the student an in-depth clinical experience in the work-up and management of infants, children and adolescents. Students will be assigned for four weeks to Children’s Hospital, New Orleans, under the supervision of Dr. Chuck Hill and Dr. Evans Valerie. Expected duties include making daily rounds with residents and faculty, attendance at the out-patient clinic, and participation in operations for inguinal hernia, pyloric stenosis, Hirschprung’s disease, gastroesophageal reflux and pediatric tumors. As the only senior student assigned to the service, you will function with the house staff as an integral 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.
