Thank you for your interest in a plastic surgery clerkship here at the University of Southern California. The plastic surgery program here is a cutting-edge, multi-center experience with broad exposure to all aspects of plastic surgery. We have designed the clerkship experience based on these characteristics.
Typically, a visiting student will spend 1 week on four of the five following rotations:
- Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
- USC University Hospital
- LAC County Hospital Plastic Surgery Service
- LAC County Hospital Burn Unit
- Children's Hospital of Los Angeles
