Welcome to the General Surgery Residency Program
We are a diverse and clinically busy department.
Our residency program focuses on a strong clinical experience with an emphasis on evidence-based medicine. VCU Health is a regional leader in surgical care, and the backbone of this care is our faculty and residents. Our faculty are excited to mentor and train our residents. We have a robust didactic curriculum, featuring protected time on Thursday mornings for resident-led didactics, resident case conferences, and Grand Rounds. Faculty moderators are also present. Continuing this academic year is a Thursday evening Chief Resident-led review focusing on in-service and board exam training. During their time, residents also participate in a well-developed simulation curriculum at the School of Medicine Center for Human Simulation and Patient Safety. Most residents elect to spend one or two years in a research lab while here. Our focus is to develop our residents into competent and confident surgeons and position them to achieve their professional goals. Included on this website is information about our current residents and alumni and post-residency positions.
