Pediatric Surgical Oncology (S-129)


In this elective, medical students will be encouraged to actively participate in all of the activities of the Pediatric Surgical Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Students will scrub in to the operating room and participate in daily rounds and conferences. Emphasis will be placed on the pretreatment evaluation of patients, the available modalities of therapy, and the principles by which a choice of treatment is ultimately made. Students who are so inclined will have the opportunity to undertake a clinical research project.
