Out-Patient Surgery (OPS)

All students are required to complete 2 weeks in the outpatient surgery setting either on your 3rd or 4th year. It is advised to complete your general surgery rotation first. Two week electives at any accredited academic health center that meets the objectives will also satisfy this requirement. During this time we endeavor to broaden the students experience in evaluating surgical patients and to increase their understanding of the different environments in which surgery is performed.
