Clerkship Program

The goal for the clerkship is to prepare the student to work effectively, as a primary care provider, within a multidisciplinary medical team caring for the surgical patient. The curriculum will emphasize the importance of evaluation of potential surgical patients, the appropriate referral to a surgical specialist, and effective communication with both the patient and the specialist.
