Nowadays, wherever you go to residency, you will be trained as a surgeon, meeting specific requirements by governing bodies. The key to selecting a residency program then is who do you want to surround yourself with? Who do want to call in the middle of the night when a patient is crashing and you need help? Who can you call to fill in during a family emergency? Surgical residency is challenging regardless of the program you choose, but if you surround yourself with hard-working, loyal, passionate people and you give 110% - you're better off. That's what our program is about.
