Senior Boot Camp Elective

Once the surgical internship begins, the overwhelming number of responsibilities and requirements placed on the intern often make learning new information and tasks difficult. For 4 weeks during the fourth year, a surgical “Boot Camp” provides students an opportunity to learn and develop basic surgical skills under a less stressful environment and prepare for their surgical internships. In addition, students can increase their confidence in basic administrative, technical, and patient care skills before the surgical internship.
