Surgery Externship @ St. John Med Center, OH

Thanks to an update from a reader - the Cardiothoracic Surgery externship that I had posted earlier at Bryn Mawr Hospital, PA has now shifted to St. John Medical Center at Westlake, OH, a 200-bed hospital affiliated to Case Medical Center University Hospitals in Cleveland, OH. The physician facilitating the externship is the same - Dr. Robert Boova.

Like mentioned before, this is a cardiothoracic (CT) surgery externship and will greatly enhance your application to General Surgery residency. CT Surgery is a fellowship done after completing General surgery residency

For application information, Contact: Judy Gavin:

More details and link updated Hospital website to follow in a few days...

"International student Observerships will be considered for a fee. Externships are must be arranged in advance with Department of Surgery faculty"

So for externships, you might wanna email faculty along with your resume and career goals to try and arrange for one: contact information could be obtained from Surgery subdivisions page or emailing surgery program coordinator at
