Information for Medical Students

Medical Students

The Division of Acute Care Surgery has a strong commitment to education. Twelve to fourteen 3rd-year USC students rotate through the four teams (A, B, C, and D) of the Division each month, as part of their Surgical Clerkship.

4th-year USC medical students may rotate each month as part of their elective rotation schedule. These positions are much sought-after and fill very quickly in the academic year.

The volume of patients, extensive clinical experience and strong educational program make the trauma rotation one of the most highly requested elective rotations. The educational curriculum includes bedside tutorials, teaching rounds, lectures, hands-on workshops, and problem-based learning sessions.

Medical Students

Each faculty of the Division of Acute Care Surgery is actively involved in teaching medical students. The Department of Surgery ranks No. 1 among the six Departments offering core clerkships for its teaching excellence according to the medical students’ evaluations and the Division of Acute Care Surgery ranks No. 1 among the nine different divisions of the Department. There is a strong interest in educational research.
