General Surgery Residency Training Program

For detailed program information please go to the General Surgery Program website.

The General Surgery Residency Program is one of the finest surgical training programs in the country and strives for clinical, educational, and academic excellence in all its endeavors. The program attracts highly accomplished and ambitious residents from throughout the country and enjoys an outstanding esprit d'corps and sense of community. The residents are supervised by 91 outstanding surgical faculty members. Research time is not required in the event of previous experience, but it is strongly encouraged and there is a program emphasis on scholarship and academic development. Following completion of the training program, most graduates continue their training in fellowship programs and more than half of the graduates are now full-time academic surgical faculty at high quality programs around the country. In recognition of our plentiful and excellent educational opportunities the program has recently expanded to seven residents per class, beginning with the 2016-2017 academic year. Approximately 7,000 procedures are performed annually by the General Surgery residents and their supervising faculty at the University of Michigan Hospital, Mott Children's Hospital, and the Ann Arbor Veterans' Administration Hospital.
