About Surgical Clerkship

Robert DiRaimo, M.D. - Clerkship Director
Jillian Telford, MPA - Surgical Education Manager
Darryl Wilson - Surgical Clerkship Coordinator

The student follows patients on a variety of surgical services throughout their illnesses and takes an active part in the therapy, including the performance of minor technical procedures, assisting at operations, and following results.

Emphasis is placed on the clinical, rather than the technical, aspect of surgery.
Instructional venues include rounds, teaching conferences, and an audiovisual laboratory in addition to clinical teaching at the bedside.

Please note that the core & elective surgical rotations are offered to SUNY Downstate Medical Students ONLY.
