UCSF General Surgery Residency Program Ranked Among Top 2 Percent in Country
UCSF General Surgery Residency Program - October 27, 2014
The online physician network Doximity and U.S. News & World Report ranked UCSF's General Surgery Residency Program among the top 2% in the U.S. out of more than 250 accredited general surgery residency programs. The goals of the surgical residency program are two-fold. The first is to prepare residents to become safe, qualified, board-certified surgical practitioners. The second is to train residents to be future teachers and leaders in surgery. A review of graduates from the past 30 years indicates that greater than 80% continue in fellowship programs and almost half become surgical academicians associated with university departments of surgery. The program prepares residents for any career they may choose, teaching them on services from all of the general surgery specialties (Gastrointestinal, Hepatobiliary, Colorectal, Vascular, Pediatric, Transplantation, Cardiothoracic, Plastic, Trauma and Endocrine Surgery) Residents are also exposed to other surgical specialties (ENT, Neurosurgery, Orthopedics and Urology) as well as Critical Care and Anesthesia.
