Get Early Operative Experience
It's no secret. The best way to become skilled in general surgery is to receive regular operative experience. Our Residents are in the operating room as early as week 3 of the program. Our program structure will train, challenge, and prepare you for a successful career in surgery.
The five year curriculum is carefully and thoughtfully planned to maximize the educational and clinical experience. Our residents gain progressive responsibility throughout this period. Professionalism and clinical competence are two aspects that are especially emphasized. Upon graduation, the new surgeon is then able to successfully enter practice or pursue a fellowship.
Our faculty consists of a strong educational group of skilled surgeons. Each of them are dedicated to the enhancement of medicine and the education of residents and medical students. They represent a wide range of sub-specialties and each add to the robust training environment.
