Visiting Medical Students
After much thoughtful consideration, and with the well-being of students, staff, and patients at the center of this decision, it has been decided by Executive Dean Ojo (in consultation with UKHS) that visiting students (international or domestic) will not be allowed on the KC campus for the 2020-2021 academic year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The KC campus will offer one course (virtually) to allopathic students interested in Urology as a specialty choice. This will be a two week virtual rotation - SURG 925. Ambulatory Specialties (Virtual) Selective in Urological Surgery, which can be applied for through VSAS/VSLO. Description of Course: To optimize the health of men, women, and children, physicians must be able to diagnose, manage, and provide preventive advise concerning a wide range of conditions and symptoms pertaining to the genitourinary tract. The process depends on adequate patient assessment and appreciation of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of individual conditions, and the appropriate use of medical, surgical, and other interventions. Students will be on service for a total of two weeks. During that time they will participate in the following activities remotely and virtually: lectures, conferences, case series, technical labs, mock patients, outpatient clinic with supervised patient encounters as well as telehealth visits, operating room experience via simulcast and observation, creative writing exercises, as well as grand rounds presentation.
