Valid start weeks for four-week blocks are: Weeks 1, 5, 9, 13, 17, 21, 25, 29, 33, 37, and 41.

This sub-internship elective is designed to give students in-depth experience in the clinical management of patients on the Vascular Surgery Service. The elective will offer opportunities for students to gain experience in preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative, management of patients with surgically treated vascular diseases/conditions. Students will serve as clerks and will be responsible for patient management with house staff under the guidance of the chief resident and attending surgeons. There will be opportunity for students to evaluate patients, decide on a diagnostic and management strategy and provide care under house staff and faculty guidance, as well as ample opportunity to attend and participate in conferences. Notice: If a student desires to work more closely with a “specific attending,” he/she must make special arrangements with the faculty member prior to beginning this elective. If you have any questions regarding this notice, please call Doug Brown in the Surgical Education Office 314-362-8029.
