Pre-Clinical Medical Students

First and second-year medical students from UC Davis interested in plastic surgery may contact Kimberley Russell, to arrange a meeting with a faculty member. Shadowing opportunities can be arranged if desired following an introductory meeting.


We receive numerous requests for shadowing opportunities from undergraduates. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate all requests, and therefore these will be determined on an availability basis. If interested, please submit your CV and a letter of interest explaining your qualifications, goals, and proposal for shadowing to Kimberly Russell .
