The Academic Program

Surgery emphasizes the use of interventional techniques to treat injury and disease. The educational program encompasses the pathology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and perioperative management of surgical disease and trauma.

The department provides instruction to medical students in all surgical disciplines, as well as the related fields of anesthesiology, radiology, and emergency medicine. It directs general surgical and orthopedic residency programs, as well as a surgical critical care fellowship. Research and continuing medical education programs are provided.
