General Surgery Residency
The Medical College of Wisconsin General Surgery Residency is a five-year training program with seven categorical positions each year. The program’s strengths and resources include:
• A broad-based clinical program at multiple teaching sites
• Research laboratories with established and funded investigators
• A growing medical complex surrounded by a beautiful residential neighborhood
• A philosophy of surgical education in which significant responsibility is delegated and experience is gained early in the training program.
The innovative educational program encompasses protected core curriculum segments using the latest in instructional strategies and simulations, providing a strong scientific and procedural foundation across surgical diseases and conditions integrated with intensive hands-on pre-, intra- and post-operative experiences. Emphasis is placed on the acquisition and development of patient management, procedural, operative, and critical thinking skills.
The Medical College of Wisconsin’s affiliated hospitals provide a breadth of patient diversity and surgical conditions that enriches each resident’s learning and patient management experience within community-based, university-based, and Veteran Administration hospital systems.
