Third Year Medical Students

Welcome to the UCSF Fresno Department of Surgery! Our Surgery Department hosts medical students from the UCSF main campus for their third year surgical clerkships, as well as provide mentors and surgical experiences for the SJV PRIME students. Our department also hosts visiting students on acting internships from all over the country. Depending on their rotation, students will spend most, if not all, of their time at Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC), a 650-bed tertiary referral center located in downtown Fresno. In addition to having one of the busiest emergency departments in California, CRMC is a regional burn center, and the only level one trauma center between Los Angeles and Sacramento, serving the greater San Joaquin Valley of California (an area of approximately 15,000 square miles containing about 4 million people).

We are excited to have you, and look forward to your rotation with us! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to our Medical Education Coordinator via email at [email protected].
