Senior elective rotations for UMMC and other medical students are offered in all divisions in the Department of Surgery, and these rotations are arranged through the Surgery Education Office. After the Surgery Education Office determines the availability of a rotation, the Office of the Registrar will send an application form to be filled out completely and returned. Senior externships are offered only to students enrolled in medical schools accredited by the Association of American Medical Colleges. Each rotation lasts one month. Housing is not provided for students from other medical schools.
