Education & Training
The education of medical students, residents, and fellows remains one of the top priorities of the Department of Surgery.
All third-year students are required to complete a two-month clerkship in surgery. After successful completion of the third-year clerkship, students may take sub-internships during their fourth year in general surgery, trauma surgery, vascular surgery, or burn surgery. Elective rotations are offered in the ICU, emergency department, pediatric surgery, and all of the surgical specialties.
The Department of Surgery residency program is responsible for training more than 150 residents in general surgery, emergency medicine, and oral and maxillofacial surgery.
The Department provides subspecialty training with fellowships in colorectal, breast, trauma/surgery and critical care, pediatric surgery, emergency medicine, minimally invasive/bariatric, and vascular surgery.
