Our residents gain knowledge through weekly didactic and simulation sessions, personalized mentoring, involvement in quality improvement and high reliability committees, and scholarly activity. Our residents gain expertise in understanding clinical outcomes and value-based care.
Graduated clinical responsibility is a hallmark of our residency. Residents gain confidence and competence through a breadth and depth of clinical experience involving highly complex patients as well as more common surgical management. Our residents work directly with dedicated faculty committed to education in a way not possible in many residency programs. Our two teaching hospitals, Lutheran General Hospital and Christ Medical Center, are at the forefront of providing high quality surgical care and in the compassionate treatment of a diverse patient population.
In our program, residents are integral to the department and to the delivery of the very best surgical care. Our residents are colleagues, not just passive learners. Our faculty are devoted to mentoring and teaching to help our residents achieve their highest potential. We are proud of our program and of our residents.
We work together to provide excellence in education, in patient care, and in opportunities to advance surgical knowledge.
