Why I chose FAU After having worked in well-established academic surgical programs in Shanghai, Seattle, Boston, and Baltimore, I chose to finish my training in this brand new General Surgery program in Boca Raton, because I believe it will be fun and provide me with all of the challenges and opportunities I need to become an excellent surgeon.

Why I chose FAU My decision to continue my General Surgery training at FAU was based on the character of the program as revealed by the faculty members with whom I interviewed.  I was enchanted with the camaraderie, heuristic approach to teaching, and sincere appreciation of research and academia. Our program is growing, and I am extremely proud to call it home.
