SURG 319A. Introduction to Plastics & Reconstructive Surgery Clerkship (SUMC, LPCH)

Closed to Visitors

Courses      Clerkships

This clerkship is meant for those students who did not have the opportunity to rotate on the hand/plastic surgery service during their core surgery clerkship. This clerkship will introduce students to plastic and reconstructive surgery. Plastic Surgery encompasses a broad field and has been described as operating on the “skin and its contents.” Students will be part of the team in managing patients both in the inpatient as well as outpatient setting. Students will participate in daily rounds and have direct patient care responsibilities. Students will assist in the Operating Room and learn fundamental suturing skills. Students will work in the clinic to understand the indications and contraindications to plastic surgery, and also about how to discuss surgical procedures with patients and families.
