Pre-medical Surgical Intern Program @ UC Davis- Do not have to be a UC Davis student- Deadline 2/5


Pre-Medical Surgical Intern Program
The AMSA ARC/UC Davis Health System Department of Surgery Pre-Medical Surgical Intern Program is a unique opportunity for pre-medical students to shadow faculty, residents, interns, and medical students in the nationally recognized UC Davis Health System Department of Surgery.

The site for the program is the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, CA. This 650-bed hospital is the major teaching affiliate for the UC Davis School of Medicine. The Hospital serves an area of tremendous diversity in both cultural and socioeconomic background. It is a Level 1 Trauma Center, the only Burn Center in Northern California, the only Children’s hospital in Northern California, the only Transplant Center in Northern California, and the only such institution in inland Northern California. It is one of the five busiest trauma centers in the country and has been featured in multiple television programs.

The concept of service to those most in need underpins the teaching activities in our setting.
The Department of Surgery consists of the below surgical subspecialties:

Trauma & Emergency Surgery
Cardiothoracic Surgery
Gastrointestinal Surgery
Bariatric Surgery
Orthopedics Surgery
General Surgery
Burn Surgery
Pediatric Surgery
Otolaryngology Surgery
Plastic Surgery
Surgical Oncology
Urological Surgery
Transplant Surgery
Vascular Surgery

This is NOT a volunteering program. This is a mentorship program in which you will be interacting with physicians in the department or surgery. You will be working with them in every step through their work: from seeing patients in the intensive care unit, to pre-operative, to bedside, trauma bay, operating room, clinics, and rounds. You will experience what surgeons and physicians do every day; you will be part of their team and treated as such. This program is under the supervision and guidelines set forth by the Chairman of Surgery at UC Davis Health System.

Time Commitment
The program will start around March 1, 2010 and set to end on the last week of June 2010. You are anticipated to participate the entire time (unless you choose to leave the program, or are removed).
