Medical Student Elective Rotations

The Department of General Surgery at Carolinas Medical Center offers four-week elective rotations on the general surgery and trauma services to fourth-year medical students and eight-week rotations to third-year medical students from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine only. Electives for 4th year students are scheduled by Leanne Shook at UNC (see below). Third year students are scheduled by Stacey Owen at UNC (see below).

These electives combine practical clinical experience with didactic instruction. Didactic instruction includes several weekly formal conferences in which students must participate.

Students work directly with and under the supervision of the residents and members of the surgical attending staff. They participate in surgical procedures and treatments on patients in the inpatient and outpatient setting. Students' work is monitored closely by senior residents, members of the general surgery attending staff and the chairman of the department.

Students interested in the general surgery or trauma service rotations should contact Leanne Shook or Stacey Owen at the Office of Student Affairs at the University of North Carolina to schedule an elective rotation.
