Elective Rotation: Surgery

Contact: Christine Hancock, David Stromberg

Location: Fort Bragg, CA

1-2 week rotation with several enthusiastic surgeons in a small 25 bed publicly owned hospital in Fort Bragg, CA.  Originally an alternative to our surgical experience at Sutter Santa Rosa, this experience is now a possible choice for residents interested in rural medicine and a unique surgical experience.  The rotation has included working with the town’s only two general surgeons.  They have been very willing to work with residents while providing lots of hands-on experience in both the OR, hospital and outpatient setting.  A rich opportunity to improve your surgical acumen while enjoying the wonders of the north coast.  

Potential also exists to expand this to other physicians at the hospital including OB and, possibly, TAB training.
