SUR 40131 - Junior Internship in Trauma Surgery

Cr Hrs: 6
Session Length: 4 weeks

This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 6 credit hours. The student will function as a junior intern with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in all of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation. Clinical performance at the level of a PGY1 and responses to Socratic questioning form the basis for evaluation. All six core competencies are assessed through daily and call interactions with the faculty. The objectives of this senior clerkship are for the student to learn how to evaluate and treat the acutely injured patient. Each student will manage patients during resuscitation and evaluation phase. They follow patients and coordinate care through initial treatment to their rehabilitation from acute injury. The students will be expected to assume primary control of a limited number of patients and will be responsible for working with their resident and faculty advisors to come up with appropriate treatment and plans. Students are also expected to see these patients during outpatient visits in the Trauma Clinic. Students must attend all conferences regularly held in the Division of Trauma/Department of Surgery and actively participate in discussion and lectures.
