The General Surgery Residency Training Program provides basic and advanced surgical experience for those seeking a career in general surgery as well as for those who plan to undertake further training in a surgical specialty.
The program is designed to be flexible and meet the needs of individual surgeons, whether they are preparing for community practice or academic and research roles.
Though broad-based, the residency emphasizes in-depth training, with graded operative responsibilities for few trainees selected rather than superficial and limited training for a large number.
The size of the program encourages esprit de corps and commitment to high standards in patient care.
