Statement of Goals:
This elective is particularly useful for students contemplating a career in surgery, pediatrics, or emergency medicine.
Learning Activities
The student functions as a sub-intern on their service, rounding with the team, participating in surgery, and evaluating patients referred to the service from the emergency room or in the hospital. There is no required call, but the student will be expected to stay late 1-2 nights per week.
Evaluation Methods
BCM students will receive an evaluation form from the Registrar’s Office with instructions on the completion and submission process. Visiting elective students should provide the Clerkship Coordinator and or the Visiting Elective Coordinator with a required evaluation form from their institution. If the student does not have an evaluation form, Baylor will provide one and have the student evaluated.
