  • Prepare residents who possess the knowledge and skills to competently manage a comprehensive range of health conditions
  • Provide educational experiences that prepare residents to be competent general surgeons who are able to provide comprehensive and coordinated care to a broad range of surgery patients
  • Familiarize residents with the fields of subspecialty surgery to enable them to participate as team members in the care of patients with chronic and complex disorders
  • Function with other members of the healthcare team in both inpatient and ambulatory settings to be competent leaders in the organization and management of patient care
