Preliminary Residents

VCU Surgery has a strong commitment to our preliminary residents, both designated and undesignated. We offer our prelims the categorical experience including the same rotation schedules, operative experience, and call requirements.

Historically, our preliminary class makeup has been (50%) designated and (50%) undesignated. Our undesignated preliminary residents have successfully found categorical positions in surgery, emergency medicine, radiology, PM&R, and radiation oncology with an overall match of 100% over the past 5 years.
