Can doctors have medical students treat patients under anesthesia without the patient's consent?
This is like when a patient's informed consent is ignored and a student can do these procedures without the patient's knowledge. Even in a teaching hospital.
In the end the informed consent is overridden. Like for gynecologic exams?
Can someone who is a medical person explain that. Any other replies are welcome, respectfully..

there are doctors who educate other doctors in a specialty practice. technically, while still being students they already have several doctorate degrees in medical-practices.
for example: oncology.

Ok, now explain in detail here. Are you saying that interns could do those procedures under a general consent? Now in plain language can interns do these exams without the patient knowing? Like a blanket consent? Four states have now outlawed this. 46 states are in the process of overturning and if I were in that situation I would explicitly state that this will NOT happen... No interns, no doctors aside from the doctor doing the surgery....

A medical student is not licensed to practice medicine, and no medical facility would allow a student to treat a patient.

In a teaching hospital, the consent form for ANY procedure explicitly IS consent for interns to perform under the supervision of a fully licensed physician.
That said, unless the patient is unconscious, it is generally IMPOSSIBLE for an intern to perform the procedure without the patient knowing.
