Resident academic research is a hallmark of a University of Michigan education. We provide our residents with the support to fully explore their areas of research, resulting in nuanced, advanced surgeons.
The expectations of surgeons have evolved beyond the ability to identify and delicately repair damage caused by illness and injury. Research has become integral to the development of world-class surgeons. It yields informed, curious, creative specialists that will work each day to save lives. Investing dedicated time to research has proven invaluable in resident training.
Today, at the University of Michigan, we are committed to developing academic surgeons that are highly adept and innovative — surgeons that go on to lead our country’s top hospitals and health systems. And few institutions in the nation are better positioned to advance the future of health care than U-M.
