We’re extremely proud of our Professional Development and Research Training Program, which has continued to grow and expand since its inception in 2002. Many of our surgery trainees have achieved recognition on the national level for their clinical, academic and research activities. Our general surgery residents continue to meet and surpass expectations on a daily basis, contributing immensely to the scientific foundation for surgical practice.
