Thank you for your interest in our program. We welcome you and greatly encourage medical students interested in the UM Health-West General Surgery Program to participate in a fourth year General Surgery audition rotation.
It is the mission of the General Surgery Residency Program to educate its residents to become competent, compassionate physicians and excellent surgeons.
It is the goal of our program to assist our residents in becoming experts in surgical care.
The program seeks to give its residents the tools needed to sustain a lifetime of education, to become involved in and committed to the broader community and to pursue an awareness of the values in their lives which create satisfaction and self-actualization, both personally and professionally.
The General surgery residency program is made up of residents and faculty who are engaged in the process of surgical education in order to provide surgical care to the community. The program provides a structured 5-year curriculum to enable residents to learn the skills they need for successful surgical practice.
It is the aim of the program to produce experts in surgical care who will be committed to the broader community and diversity and able to pursue an awareness of the values in their lives which create satisfaction and self-actualization, both personally and professionally.
