SURG 438 - PLASTIC SURGERY

[152 Hours]
This fourth year course provides the student with an in-depth clinical experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Students will be assigned to a specific preceptor 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 Children’s Hospital in New Orleans. 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 a range of surgical interventions, including plastic and reconstructive procedures. The patient population ranges from outpatient cosmetic surgery to major reconstructions for trauma and burn patients. The four weeks can be very busy but will also be very rewarding.
