Welcome to the Surgery Clerkship! The 10-week clerkship in Surgery at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine is designed to give the student a broad exposure to surgery as well as an understanding of the medicine of surgery. During the course of the rotation, the student will be expected to focus on several areas of study which will include basic principles of peri-operative management of the patient with a surgical problem. An awareness of the nature and management of surgical disease is developed by case oriented small group sessions, rounds and weekly conferences. In summary, the rotation will not serve as a comprehensive course in surgery, but rather as a foundation for how surgery integrates into the overall care of patients.
