SCSK 523 Surgery

Chamarthy Subbarao, BSc, MBBS

In this four-week, one-credit selective, students attend three lectures about history taking, communication skills, and the history and running of the Grenada Health Services. Students attend clinics and surgical operations under guidance of a surgeon. They participate in taking histories from patients and observe the examination of  these patients followed by discussions with the attending surgeon. They observe the examinations and surgical procedures in different specialties. They are required to keep a log of their activities and submit detailed case histories. A one-credit version with less time commitment is offered during the school term.
