Visiting Clerkships

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

We encourage anyone interested in applying to our residency to consider a visiting clerkship. Clerkships are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are interested in applying for a clerkship, please do so as early as possible. Please visit http://www.usc.edu/schools/medicine/education/admissions/adm_vsc.html to fill out an application through the USC school of medicine website. The application process is handled through the School of Medicine Student Affairs.

You can also contact Student Affairs, Bobbie Kasbekar at (323) 442-2569 directly regarding application questions.

For questions specific to the program, please feel free to email any one of the residents or our residency program coordinator Erica Luong at Erica.Luong@surgery.usc.edu (323) 442-7903.
