Hi friends I m a final year medical student studying in a med school in India. I want to do clinical electives in surgery in US med school. My question is, are fourth year medical students in US allowed to perform clinical examinations on patients? Are they allowed to get scrubbed in the operations theatres and assist the operations? Can they give iv, im injections to the patients? Or i will just have to observe the residents and the doctors perform the clinical examinations and operations?
