During the clerkship you will to answer to an array of people, from your clinical team and preceptor to the core clerkship staff. We are available by appointment or on the fly to address any questions you may have about day-to-day aspects of the rotation, as well as academic or professional concerns you may have. Particularly if you feel anything is “wrong,” please contact us—and specifically the Course Director—as early in the rotation as possible. We also invite you to use us as a resource for exploring a career in surgery, and of course we welcome your suggestions for improving and enhancing the clerkship experience at any time.
