Rotations - Surgical Subspecialties
The second and third years of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Residency are spent as a matriculated third and fourth year medical student. Successful completion of these years will result in an MD degree as well as completion of Steps 1 and 2 of the USMLE.
As the matriculation and completion of medical school is an integral part of the Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery training program, the objectives of these rotations are simply to successfully complete the medical school curriculum, obtain an MD degree and pass the USMLE Steps 1 and 2.
The resident will function as a full-time third and fourth year medical student and have the requisite responsibilities. These include completion of all assignments, attendance at lectures and symposia, examinations, on call duties and other requirements for each individual rotation.
Training received will be appropriate for a medical school curriculum with the attainment of an MD degree and successful completion of the USMLE Steps 1 and 2.
The resident is responsible for all departmental seminars, lectures and conferences during their rotations.
The resident is under the authority and responsibility of the Dean of Academic Affairs and the Dean of the School of Medicine at LSUHSC Shreveport as well as undergraduate faculty directors in each department's rotations as scheduled.
Evaluations will be performed in the same manner as the entire medical school class resulting in an official medical school transcript and graduation from the medical school with an MD degree.
