Students are expected to function as a part of their assigned clinical team. Participation and attendance are essential components of the course. A written exam, an informed consent paper and attendance at the informed consent session, a long case report, a graded standardized patient case, and participation in a simulation are required. Attendance at orientation and mid-course and end-of-course meetings with the course co-directors are also mandatory.
Students should purchase or borrow a surgery text for the course. The Department of Anesthesiology loans students an anesthesia text for the duration of the course.
Students log their experiences, using the School of Medicine approved worksheet, available in BlackBoard or at the link below. Experience in nine Competencies is required.
