Undergraduate Medical Education Programs
The Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery stirves to inspire the next generation of surgeons by providing medical students with a balanced exposure and experience that meets core surgical competencies in both knowledge and skills. The faculty is actively involved in all educational aspects of our medical student programs, including an eight-week core surgery clerkship rotation for third-year medical students as well as surgery electives in which fourth-year medical students from Baylor and other schools participate. The department also supports the Baylor Student Surgical Society, an organization which provides information and support for Baylor medical students interested in a career in surgery or a surgical subspecialty.
