Education

As a large multi-specialty surgical clinic, we treat a wide variety of surgical problems that are referred from hospitals throughout the state.

As such, we are able to provide a rich educational environment for medical students and surgical residents. We welcome students and residents to rotate on our service to help gain surgical experience. The clinical experience includes a significant amount of time spent in the operating room, as well as clinic time and surgical teaching rounds.

Surgical residents may rotate on our surgical service as part of their training. Their experience with us not only provides very broad surgical training, but also offers a unique exposure to surgery in the private practice setting.
