Education, Residency & Fellowship
Mission of the Indiana University General Surgery Residency Program
To develop excellent general surgical clinicians who are equipped with the competencies essential for providing high standard of care to the citizens of Indiana, to advance the surgical sciences through research, and to instill leadership qualities that will empower our graduates to function exceptionally in all practice settings.
The Department of Surgery places a strong emphasis on education for students, residents, and fellows. The development that occurs from a novice surgeon to a competent surgeon requires a defined curriculum, a dedicated teaching faculty, and an environment that is optimal for patient care. Surgical education at Indiana University upholds these standards and seeks to be among the top surgical departments that achieve excellence in physician training.
