Undergraduate Education

Faculty members in the Division of General Surgery are involved in the University of Ottawa’s undergraduate medical degree program, participating in teaching part of the block curriculum as well as clerkship seminars (during the third and fourth years of the medical degree program).

External clerks

Medical students from other universities frequently choose to take their electives at the University of Ottawa through our Division of General Surgery as part of their surgical clerkships. Candidates are required to apply through the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Medicine and can do so anytime throughout the year.

General Surgery

Dr. Isabelle Raiche is the lead for Undergraduate Education in General Surgery.  All 3rd year Medical Students at the University of Ottawa must rotate through General Surgery as part of their clerkship.  In their 4th year, medical students from universities across the country can request an elective within the Division of General Surgery to determine if it is the specialty they wish to pursue for postgraduate education.
