With a focus on first-hand experience, our residents benefit from an environment without competition with fellows for cases, allowing you to gain the extensive operative experience necessary for your growth. You will have ample access to a broad spectrum of cases and specialties with significant open, laparoscopic, and robotic surgical opportunities.

Our curriculum is designed to create a well-rounded education in surgery as well as to prepare you for successful board certification. We prioritize protected educational time, including weekly didactic conferences and Morbidity and Mortality (M&M) meetings, where active faculty participation enhances your learning experience. These sessions provide invaluable insights and a collaborative atmosphere for educational discussions. We are proud to offer access to our state-of-the-art simulation center, with structured hands-on simulation training to ensure that you are well-prepared and confident as you gain autonomy throughout training.

We believe in fostering an environment that encourages growth, innovation, and excellence in surgical education. We are excited about the possibility of you joining our program and look forward to supporting you as you embark on this challenging and rewarding path.
