The Department of Surgery is committed to building a research infrastructure for the future leaders of academic surgery.
Our department's Michigan Promise pledges to support each of our surgeons in achieving their full professional and academic potential in a diverse and inclusive culture. This includes providing a wide array of research environments that offer our faculty and trainees different opportunities in which to thrive.
We have created a unique collection of six initiatives within the department to foster collaboration and cutting edge research in these areas for our faculty members and trainees. The six cores encompass basic and translational science, outcomes and policy, training research, surgical innovation and global surgery.
Our centers and courses drive development in each of these core areas. These initiatives include the Center for Basic & Translational Science, the Center for Healthcare Outcomes & Policy, the Center for Surgical Training and Research, the Center for Global Surgery, and the Center for Surgical Innovation, in addition to the Health & Design Fellowship.
