Objectives

To provide a unique, personal preceptorship for medical students to learn the principles of Plastic, Cosmetic, and Reconstructive Surgery.

Description

Our practice is located in Weston, Florida – just outside Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. It is hospital and clinic based and covers most aspects of plastic surgery. Through this rotation, medical students will be exposed to both the cosmetic as well as reconstructive side of Plastic Surgery. Weekends are reserved for personal study time.

Students who have rotated with us previously speak highly of their experience with our group and cite the team camaraderie, outstanding facilities and broad clinical exposure with hands on learning as the memorable benefits.

Evaluation

Evaluations are completed by the staff surgeons to whom the student is assigned. Reports are given to deans and phase coordinators upon request. The student is requested to constructively assess the elective rotation.
