In this clinical course, the student will function as an acting intern.

Students will be assigned direct patient care responsibilities to be undertaken under the supervision of both faculty members and the housestaff. The student will be responsible for direct presentations to the faculty on a regular basis and will be supervised in the operating room by those faculty members.
