About Us

As a new program, our General Surgery Residency Program will build to a complement of 12 residents (two categorical residents in each year of training PGY 1-5, plus two PGY 1 preliminary residents). It is a categorical five-year General Surgery Residency Training Program leading to certification by the American Board of Surgery.

The program provides basic surgical training to residents in all areas of general surgery including breast, abdomen, head and neck, alimentary tract, endocrine, vascular system, and critical care. Experience is also provided in otolaryngology, pediatric surgery, thoracic surgery, plastic surgery and transplant.

Residents in the General Surgery Program are encouraged to pursue research and scholarly endeavors. The program provides its residents with the resources, time and logistical support to be successful in this area. For those residents who have a strong interest in research, the faculty will assist the resident to identify and select an appropriate research topic that is aligned with career plans and/or fellowship education.

What Patients Are Saying

“It was a really cool experience. It was remarkably simple and in a lot of ways I felt more comfortable, rather than sitting in the doctor’s office getting nervous. It felt a lot more conversational.”

“Meeting my doctor in this way was a blessing. It absolutely brought my doctor into my home, which is my comfort zone, instead of going to them."

What to Expect

Be sure you’re powered up and ready to go at the time of your appointment. If you experience any challenges joining the virtual visit, contact your physician’s office.
