General Surgery

Director's Welcome

Dr. NelsonThank you for your interest in our ACGME-accredited General Surgery Residency Program. As the Program Director, I bring over 25 years of experience in surgical education and am committed to the development of successful surgeons.

It is our goal to train general surgeons for practice in the community or for fellowship and academic careers. The program will include didactics in basic and clinical sciences as well as extensive experience in the operating room and in the clinic. Rotations will include general surgery, trauma, the ICU, transplant, thoracic and vascular surgery, pediatric surgery electives and opportunities for clinical research.
