Otolaryngology Virtual Subinternship for 4th Year Medical Student

​UC San Diego School of Medicine will be following the recommendations released by the Coalition for Physician Accountability and will not be able to accept visiting medical students for the 2020-2021 academic year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, subinternship rotations at UCSD Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery are currently unavailable.  In response, we have developed our Otolaryngology Virtual Subinternship for 4th Year Medical Students for those interested in learning more about our residency training program. 

Please view our Otolaryngology Virtual Subinternship for 4th Year Medical Student video

 

The UC San Diego Otolaryngology Virtual Subinternship for 4th Year Medical Student program will run monthly from August to December 2020 in two week rotations (please see dates listed in the online application form ). This is intended for MS4 students. Most meetings will be held via zoom.

  1. Attend conferences, didactics, and journal club.
  2. Spend time with our residents 
  3. Meet our faculty one on one and join them during interactive discussions with our residents.
