The purpose of this clinical rotation is to provide the physician assistant student with practical exposure to patients with commonly encountered surgical diseases. It is designed to augment, strengthen and refine the student’s knowledge and skills learned in the didactic phase. This allows students to actively participate in the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative phases of the care of a surgical patient, and participate as an integral member of the health care team while under the direct supervision of attending physicians, house staff physicians and physician assistants. The student will be responsible for performing directed history and physical examinations, diagnostic procedures, and medical and surgical management (under supervision) of patients. This is a four-week clinical rotation with 160 contact hours. (3.0 credits)
