The subinternship in pediatric surgery is designed for students who have a career interest in surgery, pediatrics, pediatric surgery or any other pediatric subspecialty. The goal of this internship is to familiarize students with the management of surgical diseases in children. It is offered at Oishei Children’s Hospital. Particular emphasis is placed on pediatric trauma, oncology and abdominal emergencies. Exposure to the care of children will occur in the wards, emergency rooms, operating room and clinic. All are integrated into the health care team and serve as subinterns with night call responsibilities. All students are required to attend Department of Surgery grand rounds and pediatric surgery grand rounds. Upon completion of this internship the student will have developed a methodologic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of inpatient and outpatient pediatric problems.

The Student Evaluation and Education Committee assigns the grade according to the academic status policies of the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Grades for the internship are based on completion of defined goals and clinical evaluations.
