Mission & Goals

Our mission is to graduate the very best academically based, broadly trained, self-sufficient surgeons who can move directly into a fellowship or practice with equal confidence. Our vision is a cadre of highly-skilled, board-certified professionals as our graduates, functioning at the highest levels of performance expected of board certified surgical specialists

The aim of the general surgery residency program is to:

  • Teach residents the clinical and basic sciences related to the practice of surgery
  • Provide experience in all areas of surgical practice; operative, postoperative, inpatient and out patient
  • Provide operative experience in the core general surgery competencies
  • Develop critical thinking skills, data/research interpretation, operative technique and clinical judgement
  • Care for a diverse and underserved patient population and provide continuity of care for patients and clinic experiences
