Surgery Residency Program

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome each of you to the Surgical Residency Program at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. The surgery residency will be filled with changes and challenges, which combined, will be beneficial to your development as an accomplished and skilled general surgeon.

The Surgical Training Program is under the direction of the full-time surgery faculty of Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. There are also approximately 32 community surgeons who actively participate in the training program and provide enormous resources of clinical material and teaching. Our training program at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine is relatively small, resulting in a close-knit, cohesive group who interact socially on many occasions.

We, the entire faculty and staff of the Department of Surgery are available at any time to assist you in your educational endeavors.
