Research curriculum

As a surgeon trainee, a strong research background—and all the skills that come with it—is critical to your success. Research experience not only gives you the ability to interpret and assess research-based literature, it also gives you the knowledge you need to act on best practices and provide responsible, high-quality patient care. Find out more about our research curriculum. 


Our five-year residency program will provide you with access to excellent academic teaching, research opportunities and a wealth of clinical and operative experiences. Find out more about our residency program.

Undergraduate clerkship
