The Department of Plastic Surgery welcomes fourth-year medical students of LCME accredited medical schools for four weeks, elective rotations at the University of South Florida. Externs are accepted through the Registrar's Office of the USF Morsani College of Medicine. For more information, visit the Morsani College of Medicine's Visiting Students page.
Visiting fourth-year students will complete two-week rotations at both Tampa General Hospital and Moffitt Cancer Center. Exposure to two of USF's major hospitals will provide a diverse experience in craniofacial trauma, burn care and reconstruction, cutaneous oncology, aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, and microsurgery. Externs are valuable members of the team and are expected to contribute to an appropriate level of surgical and clinical patient care. Additionally, students also attend our weekly USF Plastic Surgery Conference and our various Tumor Boards.
