During your third year you will have the opportunity to rotate through the University Hospitals Department of Surgery for six weeks as a part of your curriculum. While you are in the clerkship, you will be placed in small groups which are assigned to a team of attending surgeons and residents to shadow in the operating room, clinics and at departmental education conferences. You will also attend a series of student-geared lectures prepared and presented by the surgery department’s faculty members. Erica Coleman is the clerkship coordinator who works in conjunction with Dr. Emily Steinhagen, the clerkship director.
