    Medical Student Training

    A four-week sub-internship in Cardiothoracic Surgery is available to University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine medical students. Students will participate in the diagnosis, preoperative, operative and postoperative care of thoracic and cardiac patients, and may concentrate their interest in either cardiac or thoracic surgery. Students will assume the responsibility of an intern and will be responsible for diagnosis and management of patients on an inpatient service under close supervision of upper level residents and cardiothoracic surgery faculty members. Students will also be expected to attend all scheduled conferences in the department.
