Welcome to the GIBLIB Virtual Medical Student Clerkship Program - General Surgery.
Are you tired of being the fifth in line to see the operative field, behind the Fellow, PGY-3, Intern, and more senior medical student?
Do you want to move from watching the surgery on a monitor to viewing it from the surgeon's perspective?
This interactive video-based curriculum will give you the chance to view the surgery from a surgeon's point of view while gaining insights into what you may be asked as a medical student in the OR.
Using this curriculum will prepare you for your operative room experience on general surgery clerkships. By completing the 13 core general surgery videos and quizzes before scrubbing in, you will have the exposure and knowledge necessary to be comfortable alongside your surgical team and answer any questions they may throw at you. In addition to the videos, we have provided vital background information for a deep dive to understand the procedure and the indicating pathology alongside links to key literature and additional academic material. This curriculum was crafted by medical students for medical students, with input from surgical residents and attendings from years of experience within medical education.
Now, go out and crush it in the OR!
