Rebecca M. Minter, M.D., is an Associate Professor of Surgery (Section of General Surgery, Division of GI Surgery) and Medical Education at the University of Michigan. Dr. Minter graduated magna cum laude from the University of Denver in 1992. She received her M.D. degree in 1996, from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and went on to general surgery residency training at the University of Florida College of Medicine. Dr. Minter completed a two year research fellowship in molecular biology and gene therapy for the treatment of acute inflammatory conditions in 2000, and completed her general surgery residency in June of 2003. She joined the faculty at the University of Michigan shortly thereafter in July of 2003.
Dr. Minter's clinical practice is focused in the areas of pancreatobiliary and gastrointestinal surgery, with a particular focus on minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of these diseases. Dr. Minter performs both laparoscopic and robotic surgery. She has a particular interest in the management and treatment of benign and neoplastic diseases of the pancreas, including pancreatic cancer, pancreatic cystic neoplasms, and pancreatitis, as well as diseases of the biliary tract, stomach, small bowel, colon, and rectum.
Dr. Minter is a NIH funded investigator whose current research efforts are focused on the development of necessary infrastructure to support robust clinical research and biospecimen collection for the facilitation of translational research focused on the treatment of pancreatic disease. In concert with this effort, Dr. Minter and bioengineering colleagues have developed a computational modeling approach for the analysis of dynamic, complex biologic datasets. Additionally, Dr. Minter is actively involved in both undergraduate and graduate medical education at the departmental, institutional, and national levels. In line with these activities, Dr. Minter is engaged in research within the medical education domain which focuses on the development of robust metric-based curricula to be utilized in the assessment of surgical trainee performance.
