Trainees at Michigan’s Section of General Surgery can expect:
- The most diverse cases and clinical settings: Surgery trainees gain experience with all facets of general surgery — from abdominal conditions to endocrine disorders to trauma and burn — and learn from U-M’s experts in solid organ transplantation, thoracic surgery, vascular surgery, pediatric surgery, and bariatric surgery on specialty services and elective rotations. Your training ground includes the top-ranked Michigan Medicine academic medical center, and the Ann Arbor VA Healthcare System. We serve a diverse patient population from surrounding areas in southeastern Michigan, across the state, and nationally.
- Excellent career outcomes: General surgery residents finish in the top 1 percent in the country for experience with high complexity and rare cases. General Surgery at the University of Michigan is one of the largest and most well-funded academic surgical teams of its kind in the country.
- Personalized learning opportunities: Trainees have their pick of opportunities to pursue research, leadership development, additional degrees, and other complementary learning options, in addition to their clinical training. Residents may pursue a 2-year period of formal Academic Development Time after their third year of clinical training.
