Structure of the Clerkship

The surgery student’s clerkship consists of a 10 week program with 3 rotations.  The first week includes an extensive orientation with core general surgery didactics, operating room scrub sessions, hospital orientation, suture lab, and workshops.  6 weeks of the rotation will consist of general surgery at The University of Toledo’s Health Science Campus, St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, The Toledo Hospital, Riverside Methodist in Columbus, Akron, St. Joseph’s Mercy in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and various AHEC sites.  Three weeks of the rotation may include a surgery subspecialty consisting of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Neurosurgery, Plastic Surgery, Urology, and Orthopedic Surgery.  We also include Trauma, Surgical Critical Care, Vascular Surgery and Pediatric Surgery rotations.  The objective of the clinical rotation is to learn surgical concepts and management skills.

 On the last week before the final exam is given the students will attend an oral examination session and participate in a surgery OSCE demonstrating their skills they have learned modeled after the Clinical Skills CS.
