Message from the Chair

It is our first and foremost goal to train highly qualified surgical specialists and future leaders that can draw from a broad-based educational experience to provide evidence-based, high-quality, cost-effective care to patients with a wide range of surgical diseases. To this end we have designed a surgical training program that emphasizes education over service, strong academic affiliations and opportunities for scholarship, exposure to all major surgical sub-specialties, as well as deep ties to the community and our patients.

A well-chosen blend of community-based and academic hospitals and faculty expose our residents and students to all facets of modern-day surgery that will allow them to make well-informed career choices in both academic and non-academic settings.
