DESCRIPTION: An in-depth experience in the preoperative evaluation, intra-operative procedures, and postoperative management of kidney, liver, and pancreas transplant patients.

COURSE OBJECTIVES: This course is designed to offer students an opportunity to be involved with the evaluation and management of patients on the transplant surgery service. It is designed to reinforce the principles of General Surgery which are learned in the third-year but with particular emphasis to the care of transplant patients. The 4th year medical student is expected to function as an intern. The 4th year student is also expected to become more knowledgeable of the pertinent anatomy and physiology of the various transplant organs and participate in the operating room to a greater extent. Emphasis is also given to presentation skills and patient assessments. Finally, transplantation represents a field that combines many disciplines of medicine and allows a medical student to learn how to interact in this collaborative environment.
