Special Remarks

Generally, the clerkship timing is from 9 am to 6 pm. However, it may vary according to the nature of duty assigned.

The clerkship is observational in nature however the student may get opportunities to practice and assist surgeries under a doctor but it is completely at the doctors discretion. When we say observational, we mean surgeries are observational. However when the student does rounds,  the guide (teacher) gauges the expertise and allows us to do small procedures, prescribe medication and we are allowed to examine the patient thoroughly. Our patient load per day is 1000 on an average so our teachers delegate most the work.  We get a lot of patient contact, in short. However surgeries are forbidden for undergraduates and for postgraduates, they can assist on a surgery or perform surgeries under supervision.

In order to get the certificate, the student must complete at least 80% of the clerkship.

Any failure to attend the clerkship must be justified.

If the student does not respect the working conditions of the department and university, the clerkship , including boarding and lodging, will be cancelled.

If the student wishes to reduce their stay and/or clerkship duration, he/she must mention it in his AF, and get approval from the NEO first.
