Surgery Clerkship


UVA Surgery faculty with Med student caring for a patient.

The University of Virginia Department of Surgery has a long and distinguished national reputation as a premier academic surgical training program.

We anticipate that our surgical rotation will provide third year medical students with an exciting and beneficial learning experience. Students will be challenged, and their efforts will be rewarded with a memorable and invaluable experience—one that will serve them well, regardless of their eventual field of medical practice.
