SURG 439 - VASCULAR SURGERY

[152 Hours]
This fourth year course provides the student with an in-depth clinical exposure to vascular surgery. Students will be assigned to a well-established group of surgeons for the entire four week block and will have the opportunity to work at the Medical Center of Louisiana, New Orleans, West Jefferson Medical Center and Touro Infirmary. As the only senior student assigned to the service, one will function with the house staff as a member of the surgical team and will participate in daily rounds and evaluation of patients in clinic, including instruction in non-invasive ultrasound evaluation of venous and arterial disorders. Expect to first-assist on range of surgical interventions, including open and endovascular procedures, and to gain experience commensurate with that of a junior surgery resident.
