Mission Statement

The overall objective of the general surgery residency program is to train surgeons who will provide the highest quality of surgical care for their patients. In addition, our focus is to prepare our residents to become certified through the American Board of Surgery. We provide a comprehensive educational program through a spectrum of didactic, operative, and research experiences in order to encompass the breadth and depth of the field of surgery so as to prepare the residents for fellowship or practice in a wide range of clinical settings. We provide avenues for mentorship through which residents may grow professionally while cultivating a strong, positive work ethic and camaraderie. Residents are involved in surgical research to foster intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and analytical, presentation and communication skills.
