Surgery Special Electives

Students must receive departmental approval in order to register for Surgery Special Electives 697 & 699. Contact the Surgery Clerkship Specialist with the following information:

  • Institution/facility
  • Physician preceptor's name and contact information
  • A brief description of your anticipated experience. Please include program website, if available.

Once you have received departmental approval, register the course through the Registrar’s Office in Health Sciences Building, A-300 during scheduling hours.

Work Hours Policy

The goals of the medical students and the faculty of the School of Medicine are one and the same: to get the best medical education possible while not ignoring overall health and happiness. Attention needs to be paid to both duty/work hours and personal time.

Work hours rules have been developed for residents, but similar rules have not been developed for medical students. There are obvious differences in terms of goals, reimbursement, and responsibilities between residents and students. Nonetheless, some guidelines for students apply.
