Medical Student Training

3rd & 4th Year Medical Students

During the rotation, you will be exposed to a wide range of patients in the operating room and perioperative arena. Our goals are for you to experience and participate in excellent clinical care of patients, hands-on skills training and didactics, medical simulation, and classroom didactics. We will make this the best learning opportunity that we can. We expect you to be eager and involved in order for you to get the most education and experience out of your 3 to 4 weeks with us.

We would be more than happy for you to join us for a rotation if there is an opening. To enroll you will need to contact Christine Talbot-Bond in the Dean's Office. Christine can let you know what dates are available. You can reach her by phone at 843-792-2427 or email at talbotbo@musc.edu.
